Edufinet Project, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project has been working, through an Internet portal for the general public, since 2007, although its development began in 2005. In addition to more than ten business institutions and organizations, 15 universities collaborate with this programme. All of the previous have made Unicaja, one of the first institutions to launch an initiative of this kind, to be one of the most active agents in this area. This work has been recognized with several awards.

 

Since it was created, over 152,000 people have participated in the different seminars, workshops, courses or lectures organized by Edufinet, of which 108,000 are young people who have participated in the Lectures on Financial Education for Young People.

 

The website www.edufinet.com, which offers systemic and practical information in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required, has registered so far more than 7.8 million visits, with consultations and access from nearly 180 countries.

 

The Edufinet Project has other two specific portals: one addressed to young people (Edufinext) and one addressed to business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp).
