This conference aims to shed light on the importance of improving financial literacy levels, both for individuals and for society as a whole. We invite authors of original theoretical or applied research in the areas of financial literacy, financial education, financial resilience, and financial well-being to submit their research until 10 December via the call-for-papers.
Financial literacy is important, especially in today’s world where individuals are increasingly responsible for their financial well-being. Levels of financial literacy differ in the EU according to a recent Eurobarometer. Research insights and policy initiatives have proven relevant to promote financial literacy and design effective interventions. Important examples are the recently published financial competence framework for adults and the framework for children and youth developed by the European Commission and OECD-INFE.
This conference together with the high-level conference on financial literacy, resilience and inclusion also aims to provide a platform for academics to meet experts, policy makers, regulators, representatives of civil society organisations, and other stakeholders to discuss opportunities, challenges and best practices.
Organised by the European Commission, the Belgian Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) and LEER KU Leuven.
