Staff of the Italian National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) visit the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency again

València, March 15, 2024.- A new delegation from the Italian National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) has visited the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, to continue with the exchange of experiences and procedures initiated last year.

This is the second visit to Valencia made by the Italian authority, after the one carried out last September 2023 and the subsequent visit of AVAF staff to the ANAC headquarters in Rome.

On this occasion, ANAC technicians from the area of institutional relations and computer systems have delved into different areas such as the implementation of new computer tools and collaboration with other anti-fraud and anti-corruption organizations.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency thus strengthens its relationship with this European institution to obtain synergies and share experiences.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and the European University of Valencia begin their collaboration with two #DocuforumAVAF


Valencia. – March 6 and 7, 2024

The first training activity carried out between the AVAF and the UEV has been the celebration of two #DocuforumAVAF in the subject of “General principles of crime and punishment” thanks to the collaboration of professors Susana Berrocal and Carla de Paredes.

On March 6, 2024, Anselm Bodoque, head of the Training Service, energized the debate with the first course of the Law Degree at the European University of Valencia and the following day the #DocuforumAVAF was held with the second course of the double Degree of Criminology and Law, and the double Degree of Criminology and Psychology.

The learning experience offered by the AVAF to the university students allowed for the development of a fruitful debate around the doubts and questions raised by the students, which focused on the effectiveness of the tools developed to eradicate corruption, as well as the effectiveness of fraud prevention control and audit systems, in addition to insisting on civic culture and ways to break the links between apparently minor forms of corruption and major ones.

The measures implemented in the Valencian Community to fight corruption, together with the way fraud affects the quality of public services, such as education and health, stood out among the doubts raised.

The role of citizens in detecting and reporting cases of corruption in public institutions, as well as the use of artificial intelligence to combat corruption were other questions asked of AVAF staff.

With this first activity, the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and the European University of Valencia begin a collaborative relationship that aims to enhance the critical spirit of Valencian youth.
