Corruption is not a problem you can tackle in old, banal ways. You need something really fresh. You need something really original. There are a lot of such ideas here. - Iuliia Shybalkina, Ukraine, 2014 participant

Students engage in rigorous seminars and trainings, exposing them to the latest developments on anti-corruption and accountability led by experts in the field. Participants are also encouraged to approach the subject from a creative perspective and come up with innovative and untested solutions.

Upon completion of the programme, students obtain the necessary skills to empower them in the fight against corruption in their countries; they also receive 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits.
