Whistleblowing is a tool that allows the safe and confidential reporting of alleged illegal or fraudulent activities, situations of danger or risk that could cause various types of damage.
In addition to these kinds of disclosures, Fondazione Bruno Kessler suggests the whistleblowing platform for the reporting of facts, behaviors or situations that do not comply with the principles of non-discrimination and inclusion.
Disclosures can be made through the IT platform activated as part of the WhistleblowingPA project (promoted by Transparency International Italia and by the Hermes Center for Transparency and Digital Human Rights) which uses the HTTPS encryption protocol for the confidential transfer of data, which allows anonymous disclosures (provided they are well detailed) or confidential disclosures (where informants provide their names), with the obligation for those who receive them to assure discretion and confidentiality as well as the anonymity of the disclosure's author.
Who can file a disclosure claim?
All FBK staff, of any job classification level and position (including PAT staff seconded to FBK), students, interns, undergraduates, PhD students, guests and affiliated staff.
Employees and collaborators of entities subject to FBK control and companies supplying goods or services or companies that carry out works for FBK.
How can I file an anonymous disclosure claim?
By clicking on the "SUBMIT A DISCLOSURE" button, located at the bottom of this page. (Do not use the Internet Explorer browser!)
At the end of the disclosure, a code will be displayed that only the individual making the disclosure will be able to see. Thanks to this code, the informant will be able to periodically access the platform, read the responses, exchange information with FBK and attach additional documents. The code must be saved and kept in a safe place.
