The collaboration falls within the agreement entered into in December 2015 by the University of Leon, Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja to carry out training activities.

 

In recent years, several activities have been organized in Leon under this agreement, which aims at giving training on finances to university students, entrepreneurs, young people and children.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has participated in a workshop on financial education organized by the University of Leon. This initiative has contributed to increase the knowledge on finances and on the banking system, covering the different products offered and informing the participants of the usual practices of banks.

 

The workshop addressed the following topics: introduction to the importance of financial education; presentation of the Edufinet Project –created in 2005 within Unicaja-; financial and economic indicators; the financial system and the European Banking Union; main financial products –investing and savings-; and practical exercises with a banking simulator.

 

This collaboration between the Edufinet Project and the University of Leon is part of the agreement entered into in December 2015, which aimed at giving training on finances to university students, as well as to other groups such as entrepreneurs, baccalaureate students and school children. Under the said agreement, several workshops have been held in Leon and other cities in Castilla y León.

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project on financial education, promoted by Fundación Unicaja and Unicaja Banco, with the collaboration of over twenty institutions, business organizations and universities (including one from Portugal), is an award-winning initiative pioneering in Spain.

 

The Edufinet Project began in 2005 within Unicaja, which became one of the first financial institutions in Spain to promote an initiative of that kind. Currently, 14 universities –including those of Leon and Salamanca- and more than ten business organizations and institutions collaborate with this project

 

During its years of history, the project 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 more than 7.6 million visits, with consultations and access from 180 countries.

 

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