Digital financial literacy for socioeconomic inclusion and equity

About Us

In accordance with the EU Financial wellbeing barometer (2022) the level of the financial literacy for managing people’s personal finances is decreasing across Europe in compare with 2019. Digital financial literacy becomes even more important as a transformation to digital economy continues to grow in Europe.

The EU Digital strategy with a priority “A Europe fits to digital age” aims to make this transformation work for people, and strengthen the digital financial literacy is an important component of this European policy agenda. Digital financial literacy as a part of the entrepreneurial key competence is a combination of knowledge, skills and abilities needed to make informed and thoughtful personal financial decisions using digital technologies.

COVID-19 is accelerating the pace of digital transformation, however, exacerbating the risk of increased inequalities and exclusion of people with fewer opportunities those who are not digitally connected, including experiencing of digital financial exclusion. The lack of digital financial skills is the barrier to them to use the digital financial services towards the socioeconomic inclusion and equity. Thus, the motivation of the project lies in the EU Inclusion and Diversity Strategy (2021), which says that the principles of equality and inclusiveness are part of the core values of the EU. 

The motivation is also lies in European need to enhance adult learners’ digital financial literacy. Reduced incomes, job uncertainty and the prospect of a global recession mean that now, more than ever, learners especially with fewer opportunities, should be equipped with the knowledge they need to manage their personal finances in the digital age. 

Greater digital financial inclusion is an important driver for attaining social inclusion. Digital financial inclusion means that individuals have a good level of digital financial literacy to be able to access the useful and affordable digital financial products and services that meet their needs, like transactions, payments, savings, credit and insurance.
