In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

The current precautionary measures adopted by the European Parliament to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.

The meetings will be with remote participation for Members (being able to view and listen to proceedings, ask for the floor and intervene in the meeting). Other participants are invited to follow the meeting through web-streaming.

Following these decisions, the next CONT committee meeting will take place on Monday, 1 March 2021, from 13.45 to 15.45.

On 23.02.2021, CONT Members participated in a workshop which aimed to investigate how the new technologies are already being used in the field of fraud, corruption and malpractice detection, as well as prevention, what are its limitations, and how its use could be improved. Also, on a more theoretical level, it tried to give a glimpse of how data mining and artificial intelligence are able to operate in the budgetary control sphere.
