N2 - We show that the class of pairs (Γ,H) of a group and a finite index subgroup which verify a conjecture of Moore about projectivity of modules over ZΓ satisfy certain closure properties. We use this, together with a result of Benson and Goodearl, in order to prove that Moore's conjecture is valid for groups which belongs to Kropholler's hierarchy LHF. For finite groups, Moore's conjecture is a consequence of a theorem of Serre, about the vanishing of a certain product in the cohomology ring (the Bockstein elements). Using our result, we construct examples of pairs (Γ,H) which satisfy the conjecture without satisfying the analog of Serre's theorem.
