The objectives of the poll were to know the real dimension of corruption in Timișoara University Center, its forms, mechanisms of starting and consequences. The activities that will be carried out within this innitiative aim at ensuring transparency in higher education by improving the existing paths of information, and creating a common plan to prevent acts of corruption. The working teams are formed of students, professors and representatives of student and youth non-governmental organisations.
This innitiative is part of the project "Transparency and Integrity in Higher Education - A Program to Develop a Coalition of Non-governmental Organisations to Prevent Corruption", implemented with the financial support of the European Union through Phare 2003 Program Strengthening Civil Society in Romania.
