Edufinet Project, a pioneering financial education initiative

More than ten years vouch for the work of the Edufinet Project, whose dissemination work has been recognized with several awards. A pioneering initiative in Spain, it currently collaborates with more than twenty business institutions and organizations, as well as with Spanish universities and one from Portugal.

 

Edufinet was launched at the end of 2007, although its development began in 2005 within Unicaja. Since it was created, it has brought the world of finance closer to over 127,600 people -89,000 of them, young people-, which have directly participated in workshops and seminars.  The website www.edufinet.com, has registered more than seven million visits, with consultations and access from nearly 180 countries.

 

The basic pillar on which the Edufinet Project stands is its online financial education portal, which features systematic and practical information, in a question-answer format. Additionally, two other specific portals were created: the first one, addressed to business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), and the second one, for young people (Edufinext).

 

Publications on finance are other of the pillars of the Edufinet Project, such as the Financial Guide and the Financial Guide for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs. It also promotes different activities, such as summer course, participation in international projects, and the lectures Financial Education for Young People.
