Partially Online (some attendance required)
This two-day conference aims to bring together scholars who focus their research on financial literacy. We welcome papers that examine innovative methodologies and/or applications in the field of financial literacy.
The conference is organized in a blended format: We are offering online and onsite presentations. Participants have the option for either physical presence or virtual participation.
Authors/Speakers are expected to send a minimum 200-300 word structured abstract to email@example.com by July 5, 2020 at the latest.
From an empirical point of view, we appreciate papers that focus on the determinants of financial literacy, financial education design, the influence of cognitive biases in financial decision-making, and the effects of financial literacy on financial decision-making and ultimately financial well-being.
From a methodological point of view, this workshop seeks to explore economic and econometric techniques to study financial literacy issues. We especially welcome research which applies identification strategies as difference-in-differences, instrumental variables, discrete choice modeling (DCE), and randomized controlled trials (RCT).
The conference is co-organized by the research center LEER, Wikifin.be (FSMA) and the European EUFin consortium.
