More than 100 delegates representing 30 member countries attended the 18th EPAC/EACN Annual Professional Conference and General Assembly, which was hosted by the Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) and took place from 22 to 24 October 2018 in Rust, Austria. Under the theme “Multiple challenges require sustainable and interactive solutions”, the conference focused on the identification of innovative solutions contributing to the successful prevention of and fight against corruption. The event also provided a valuable networking opportunity and set the stage for further cooperation between the member organizations of EPAC (European Partners against Corruption) and EACN (European contact-point network against corruption).

The conference was opened by Mr. Andreas Wieselthaler, President of EPAC/EACN and Director of BAK. This was followed by a speech of Ms. Karoline Edtstadler, State Secretary at the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior, who emphasized that the presence of so many organizations at this year’s conference was “…a clear sign of the importance we all attach to enhancing the fight against corruption”.

  

EUROPEAN PARTNERS AGAINST CORRUPTION
EUROPEAN CONTACT-POINT NETWORK AGAINST CORRUPTION

The European Partners against Corruption (EPAC) and European contact-point network against corruption (EACN) are independent forums, united in the common goal of preventing and combatting corruption.

Together, we offer a platform for anti-corruption and police oversight practitioners to share experience and cooperate across national borders in developing common strategies and high professional standards. We advocate international legal instruments and offer assistance to other bodies for establishing transparent, efficient mechanisms.

We have more than 80 authorities from Council of Europe and European Union Member States, and an ever growing number of partners.
