Screenshot 2014-07-21 13.10.41On June 25th Blomeyer & Sanz hosted at the Veneto Regional Office in Brussels the mid-term meeting for the TACOD project. The aim of the meeting was to present preliminary findings of our research on the legal framework concerning open data and anti-corruption in Spain, Italy, Austria and the United Kingdom. In addition, Professor Richard Rose presented his paper on public opinion about corruption in the four EU Member States. Based on data from the 2013 Special Eurobarometer survey 397, his paper highlighted that TACOD citizens see corruption as high at all levels of government. Political parties are in all four countries most likely to be judged corrupt. The mid-term meeting ended with the official launch of the new TACOD project website: www.tacod.eu.
