DATACROS – Developing A Tool to Assess Corruption Risk factors in firms’ Ownership Structure (ISFP-2017-AG-CORRUPT-823792) is a research project co-funded by European Union Internal Security Fund – Police, aimed at developing a tool prototype to detect anomalies in firms’ ownership structure that can flag high risks of collusion, corruption and money laundering in the European single market.
DATACROS is carried out by an international consortium coordinated by Transcrime – Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy). The other partners involved are:

  • Agence Française Anticorruption (France)
  • Cuerpo Nacional de la Policia (Spain)
  • Investigative Reporting Project Italy (Italy)

Beneficiaries of project DATACROS are police agencies and judicial authorities, national and local public bodies (e.g. Anti-corruption agencies, Competition authorities, Contracting authorities), investigative journalists, NGOs and other actors of the civil society.
Project DATACROS lasts 24 months, ending in February 2021.
