The need to gather all the stakeholders involved in financial inclusion process  is crucial to develop coherent financial policy measures at both local and European level and to increase mutual learning about it.

Existing European networks of researchers, and/or practitioners are already successfully addressing specific aspects of financial inclusion, like responsible credit, consumer debt or microfinance.

The aim of the present network is to create a wider scope both in terms of membership (including financial institutions and associations, public institutions, government representatives, NGOs, trade unions, consumer organisations, etc.) and in terms of  objectives (promoting all  measures and actions favouring financial inclusion in general).
