Edufinet Project

 

The Edufinet Project has been working for nearly 15 years to bring financial education closer to society. Unicaja is thus one of the pioneering financial institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this kind. For this purpose, the project currently collaborates with more than ten business organizations and institutions, as well as with 16 universities.

 

Edufinet was launched, through an Internet portal for the general public, at the end of 2007, although its development began in 2005, within Unicaja. Since it was launched, more than 152,000 people have participated directly in workshops or seminars, of which more than 108,000 were young people. The website www.edufinet.com has received 7.8 million visits, with access and consults from 180 countries.

 

This Internet portal on financial education includes systematic and practical information, in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required. Later, two additional portals were created with specific contents: one for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), and one for financial education for young people (Edufinext).

 

Edufinet organizes the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People and the Financial Olympics, as well as workshops and lectures at universities, summer courses or participation in international projects. It also fosters several publications, such as the ‘Financial Guide’ or the ‘Financial Guide for business owners and entrepreneurs’.
