Every two years since 2009, European universities in collaboration with CERMi and supported by the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) have organised the European Research Conference on Microfinance. The Research Conference is a unique event that gathers together high level researchers, academics, professionals and students ensuring that the latest research is disseminated to the whole microfinance community.
The 7th European Conference on Microfinance will be held on 20th-22nd June, 2022 at the Yunus Centre for Social Business & Health, Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, United Kingdom.
The Glasgow edition will be focused on microfinance research priorities that are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to shape and create the post-pandemic microfinance research agenda. Globally, current challenges are widespread, complex and interrelated and, in this context, it is relevant to better understand the role that microfinance can play on the path for post-pandemic recovery. This will imply discussing access, product design, product delivery, funding, governance, and the limits to what microfinance can achieve, among other topics. We will also have a strong focus on innovative research methods, including cross-disciplinary methodological developments. The event will be taking place in-person at our Glasgow campus
