Project Summary                                             

“Protecting the green sector market from corruption and fraud” is a civic, institutional and scientific project for protecting the green economy from threats of fraud and corruption, thus promoting relevant sustainable and ethical standards.

“Protecting the green sector market from corruption and fraud” aims at designing a sound framework to avoid misuses and illegal practices, enhancing awareness in the business environment and among public institutions, promoting fair market conditions through clear and transparent procedures, and disseminating results to raise awareness on the issue.

The project will gain knowledge on criminal patterns, market and corporate vulnerabilities, organize laboratories to enhance the capacity to prevent risks and reduce losses, and set up a dialogue platform between public and private sector to promote the design and adoption of ad hoc standards. The focus will be placed on three specific sectors: renewable energies, logistics/mobility of persons and goods, and innovation technologies.

To carry out this project a multi-disciplinary partnership has been established by TI-It (Integrity Partner), National Anti-Corruption Authority, and RiSSC – Research Centre on Security and Crime.
