Jo Kremers will show you the newest innovative techniques, provide you with useful tools for successfully combating fraud and corruption and help you analyse real-life cases. The motto of this EU-Awarded Anti-Fraud and Corruption Game Number 3 is: “Life is like a rollercoaster, the same is our fight against fraud and corruption”. Fighting fraud and corruption can feel like entering a haunted castle, going on a river rafting trip, visiting a Fata Morgana, or it can be as beautiful as a dream flight. So join us in Maastricht and De Efteling, The Netherlands, as these attractions will provide you with insights into a fraudster’s mind.Teilen
Topics and Methodology
We would like to introduce our brand new format: Master class with On-the-spot Visits. The Chair of the Master Class is Jo Kremers, former Senior Audit Manager at the Ministry of Finance in the Netherlands.
Our approach during this unique, attractive and highly interactive event includes the set-up of a well-structured risk analysis, focused on gathering evidence, fact finding, based on professional scepticism, by the use of the internet, open sources, data analysis and sophisticated software, and not to forget the use of your most important instruments, combined with a more innovative way of thinking. Under professional coaching and guidance, enthusiastic teams are competing for the best results and a real reward.
The participants will be actively involved in various exercises and group works during the course. This round-table format will offer a platform to learn how to prevent, detect and combat irregularities and fraud in ESI Funds, IPA Funds, AMIF and ISF. Besides expert presentations, the sessions will include discussions and exchange of national (best) practices as well as expert guidance on how to best implement and apply the foreseen measures and strategies in your country.
