We are pleased to announce that the 8th European Research Conference on Microfinance will take place on 24-26 June 2024 at the University of Bergamo, Italy. The conference is organised by the University of Bergamo in collaboration with the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) and the Centre for European Research in Microfinance (CERMi).
Since it was created by CERMi in 2009, the European Research Conference on Microfinance is a special bi-annual opportunity for researchers, students and professionals all over the world to come together in order to share and discuss about their latest advances in microfinance.
The 2024 edition of the conference will delve into the role of microfinance in driving comprehensive transitions across economic, social, and environmental dimensions. Through rigorous research presentations and insightful discussions, the conference participants will investigate the impact of microfinance on economic transformation, exploring its contribution to poverty alleviation, entrepreneurship, and inclusive growth; examine the social implications of microfinance, including its role in promoting financial inclusion, social empowerment, and reducing inequality within communities; and explore the potential of microfinance in fostering environmental sustainability, analysing its support for green initiatives, climate resilience, and sustainable livelihood practices.
During the three days of the conference, researchers from Europe and beyond, including early career researchers, graduate students, and practitioners with interest on academic research will uncover innovative strategies, evidence-based insights, and actionable recommendations to further advance the field of microfinance and transition.
Save the date and join us in-person in Bergamo.
