The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has recently organized a new workshop at the University of Jaén (UJA), to provide students with basic knowledge required to act autonomously in the area of finances, as well as to inform them of the new products available for businesses.

 

This training workshop, which has been organized at the campus that the UJA has in the city of Jaen, has been attended by some 70 students, which have received practical training on the financial system and new banking products for companies, such as leasing, renting, factoring and reverse factoring.

 

This way, with this training activity, the Edufinet Project intends to promote transparency, security and responsibility in the development of the relationships between citizens and financial intermediaries and, therefore, enhance market efficiency, through a better knowledge of those tools which are most useful to operate in those markets.

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project, launched in 2007 its Internet portal, fostered by Unicaja and with the collaboration of the International University of Andalusia (Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, UNIA) and the University of Malaga (UMA).

 

However, the development of the project started in 2005 within Unicaja, and it became one of the first financial institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this kind. It currently collaborates with 14 universities and over ten institutions and business organizations.

 

During its eleven years of trajectory, it has received several awards, and more than 127,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops, lectures and seminars developed, of which 89,000 have attended the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People, linked to the Financial Olympics. The website www.edufinet.com has registered so far more than 7.6 million visits, with access from nearly 180 countries.

 

Edufinet offers two additional specific Internet portals: one aimed at business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp) and one aimed at financial education for young people (Edufinext).
