The Edufinet Project, a pioneering programme in Spain that has received many prizes in its nearly 15 years of history, collaborates with 16 universities and with more than ten institutions and business organizations.

 

In Castilla y Leon, Edufinet has also entered into collaboration agreements with the universities of Salamanca, Leon, Burgos and Valladolid, where it has already developed a large number of activities.

 

Unicaja’s Edufinet Project and the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca have entered into a framework agreement for the promotion of financial education programmes.

 

With the signature of this agreement, the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca joins the Edufinet Project on financial education, fostered by Unicaja in collaboration with the Andalusia International University (UNIA), University of Malaga (UMA), University Pablo de Olavide in Sevilla (UPO), University of Jaen (UJA), University of Cordoba (UCO), University of Almeria (UAL), Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), University of Salamanca (USAL), University of Leon (ULE), University of Huelva (UHU), University of Algarve (UAlg), University of Granada (UGr), University of Burgos (UBU) , University of Cadiz (UCA), and University of Valladolid (UVA).

 

Edufinet develops, in general, actions to promote financial education among the citizens, via three pillars: the website Edufinet (www.edufinet.com), publications on finances and the organization of seminars and workshops. The agreement intends to foster the enhancement of the financial literacy of citizens in general and of university students in particular.

 

The signature of the agreement is a new boost to the actions developed by the Edufinet Project in Castilla y Leon, to guide the citizens in their relationships with the financial institutions and to facilitate the decision-making on the different products and services offered.

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project intends to facilitate the decision-making when it comes to economic issues and the different financial products and services.

 

This initative has been working, through an Internet portal for the general public, since 2007, although its development began in 2005. In addition to the business institutions and organizations, 16 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).
