KSC0124--Karl-Schober 01 webIACA was the venue recently for the Final Conference of the “SIENA for Anti-Corruption Authorities (S4ACA)” Project organized by the Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK).

The project was launched in November 2014. Its aim was to enhance international collaboration among law enforcement agencies and national anti-corruption authorities in the framework of Europol’s Secure Information Exchange Network Application (SIENA).

The conference, which took place from 12 to 14 October at IACA’s Laxenburg campus, brought together more than 60 senior representatives from national anti-corruption authorities, Europol, the European Commission, and other relevant entities, as well as experts who participated in the project.

Over the three days participants showed the results of the project’s successful implementation and its contribution to anti-corruption cooperation in Europe. Furthermore, the interactive sessions and discussion, including on issues related to criminal investigations and prevention of corruption, served as a platform for building further on the project’s achievements.
