App "Correct or corrupt?" among the 40 best practices submitted for the European Public Sector Award

The Austrian Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) applied for the European Public Sector Award (EPSA) 2019 with its mobile application "Correct or Corrupt".

In 2019, this European competition, which has taken place every second year since 2007, is held under the theme "New solutions to complex challenges - A public sector citizen-centric, sustainable and fit for the future".

A total of just under 160 projects from 28 countries were submitted. The 40 best practices from 14 European countries have now been published on the EPSA website. These include the BAK’s app "Correct or Corrupt?” as well as another project of the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior (and the Austrian Federal Police Academy [SIAK], respectively), entitled "Mission Dementia – Knowledge in communicating with persons with dementia – an internet based learning program for police officers in Austria".
These 40 projects are now being evaluated by an EPSA team. The winners will be awarded the European Public Sector Award in Maastricht in November.

The app "Correct or Corrupt?” was developed by the BAK in cooperation with Höhere Technische Lehranstalt or HTL (secondary technical school) of Mistelbach, Lower Austria. In this app, 12 characters have to handle numerous dilemma situations. Its target group are adolescents and young adults. In 2018, users were able to win one afternoon at the Austrian Airborne Police for achieving the highest score.
