Building a Global Community of Scholarship, Practice, and Engagement

IMTFI supports researchers working in the developing world on issues of money, technology, and financial inclusion. Each year IMTFI researchers from around the world come to Irvine, California to share their findings and build new partnerships and collaborations.

To date IMTFI has supported over 100 researchers in 36 countries. IMTFI is building and developing a global community and network of scholarship and practice broadly focused on questions of money and technology, and welcomes academics, policymakers, development practitioners, industry designers, and other interested researchers and advocates to join the discussion.
