The Edufinet Project and the University of Seville (US) have agreed to work together to promote financial education. To this end, the academic institution joins the initiative promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja. The aim is to contribute jointly to improving the citizens’ knowledge of finance, with special focus on university students.

 

Thus, the Edufinet Project now collaborates with all the public universities in Andalusia. A total of 16 Spanish universities and one from Portugal are part of this financial education programme, as well as more than ten business institutions and organizations.

             

With the signing of this collaboration framework agreement, the US and the Edufinet Project, a trailblazer programme in Spain with 17 years of history, will promote financial education actions to provide citizens, and especially university students, with the appropriate tools in this area.

           

More specifically, the organization of different training activities (in-person and online), such as conferences, congresses, seminars, workshops and courses, and the joint execution of studies and research projects, as well as their publication, are foreseen.

 

 All of the above is made under the premise that financial knowledge by citizens in general and university students in particular will promote greater transparency, security and responsibility in the development of their relations with financial intermediaries and, therefore, greater market efficiency.

 

The Edufinet Project was launched at the end of 2007, although it began to be developed in 2005, within Unicaja, with the collaboration of the International University of Andalusia (UNIA) and the University of Malaga (UMA). It was one of the first financial institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this type. This work has been rewarded with several awards.

 

All this contributes to Unicaja being one of the most active agents in the fields of financial education and inclusion, in the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and its commitment to society.

 

 

Nearly 20 universities

 

A total of 17 university institutions participates currently in the Edufinet Project. In addition to UNIA, UMA and US, the following universities collaborate with the financial education programme: Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) from Seville, University of Jaén (UJA), University of Córdoba (UCO), University of Almería (UAL), Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), University of Salamanca (USAL), University of León (ULe), University of Huelva (UHU), University of Algarve (UALg) (Portugal), University of Granada (UGR), University of Cádiz (UCA), University of Burgos (UBU), University of Valladolid (UVa) and Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca (UPSA).

 

The University of Seville, with 500 years of history since its foundation as Colegio de Santa María de Jesús at the beginning of the 15th century, and currently positioned as a leading educational institution in Spain, joins the Edufinet Project for the benefit of Andalusian society in general and Seville society in particular.
