About EUROSAI Congress 2014

The Netherlands Court of Audit was proud to host the IX EUROSAI Congress. It was the meeting point for all supreme audit institutions in Europe, members of the EUROSAI community.

Innovation was the central theme in The Hague from 16-19 June 2014. When was the last time you did something for the first time? We would like to contribute to better public auditing through sharing new ways of performing with each other.

Our ambition was to give you at least two ideas which can be used in your home country and can be implemented shortly after the Congress.

From 16-19 June the Netherlands Court of Audit hosted the IX EUROSAI Congress in The Hague, the Netherlands. Innovation being the central theme, the Congress was an interactive experience with all manner of creative interventions and hands-on activities. There were work sessions by EUROSAI members, in which participants together found innovative solutions to the challenges facing supreme audit institutions, as well as inspirational sessions.

In November 2013 the Netherlands Court of Audit organised Young EUROSAI (YES). The very first conference for young staff members under 36 years of European supreme audit institutions. YES will inform visitors of the IX EUROSAI Congress of the views on innovation held by younger generations and possible future leaders of EUROSAI members.

The conference was an excellent opportunity for young staff members to bring forward new ideas and to share knowledge with European peers at first hand.
