Financial literacy in times of crisis

16 – 18 November 2022 | Mannheim, Germany

During the MIFE conference (November 16, 2022), academic contributions to financial literacy and financial education as well as their implications for policy and practice will be discussed. The focus is on current challenges. After an update on current research and activities of the MIFE, keynotes will be held by Gerrit Antonides (University of Wageningen), Burkhard Balz (Deutsche Bundes­bank), Martin Brown (Study Center Gerzensee and University of St. Gallen), and Elsa Fornero (University of Turin and CeRP). Once again, the Deutsche Bundesbank will sponsor the Early Career Research Prize on Financial Literacy (€5,000), which will be awarded as a highlight at the end of the first day. 

After the conference, the interdisciplinary Early Career Workshop will take place on November 17–18, 2022. Young researchers from the fields of economics, public finance, business education, psychology and related disciplines will present their papers.
