How to spend it: Following public spending in Hungary
Do Western tax payers support the inner circle of Hungarian prime minister Orban? Does his son-in-law win public tenders without competitors? Andras Pethö from Hungarian online start-up Direkt36 will talk about the details of their research into the spending of EU money in Hungary and into Hungarian public tenders according to EU legislation. Both data sets – EU spending and national spending according to EU tender legislation – apply to all EU member states and several of its partners and neighbours.
