The conference was hosted by the Basque Institute of Criminology (University of the Basque Country) and provided a forum for meeting, sharing and promoting knowledge transfer among European professionals working on issues in the field of criminology. Blomeyer & Sanz has a particular interest in research concerning transparency and anti-corruption and is currently strengthening its capacity on activities for the European Commission´s DG Home Affairs. In light of this, we attended seminars hosted by the European Working Group on Organizational Crime (EUROC). Academics from various European universities presented their research projects focusing on, inter alia, EU fraud, corruption perception and criminal enforcement of corporate crime as well as human trafficking.
