BOULDER-BERGAMO Initiative - Forum on Access to Financial Services: Expanding the Rural Frontier
September 18th - 20th 2008
Leading researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and funders will come together in this inaugural conference developed through a joint initiative of the University of Bergamo and the Boulder Institute. This year's theme of Expanding the Rural Frontier is supported by the Rural Finance Department at the Ohio State University.
This international conference aims to connect cutting-edge research on rural financial inclusion in developing countries with those professionals in the microfinance industry who will be applying it first.
The conference will include an open call for poster presentations as an opportunity for young researchers to gain the attention of leading researchers, and funders, with a reviewed competition that will allow the publication of the most innovative and challenging topics.
