Financial Development and Financial Inclusion Workshop

The issue of financial development and financial inclusion remains a highly topical one for emerging and developing economies. Access to even basic banking and financial services for both households and firms for developing economies still lags significantly behind industrial countries.  The benefits for greater financial inclusion can be seen from a number of different perspectives; it can allow households to smooth consumption over time thus allowing them to save to accommodate future income shocks, it can allow households to save for possible future health expenditure and for greater education opportunities for children. Financial intermediary development can result in smaller firms are able to better access capital. Greater usage of banks by firms and households can also increase the effectiveness of monetary policy transmission. 

This workshop brings together researchers from academic Institutions, think-tanks and policy institutions to present and discuss topics pertaining to financial development, financial inclusion and financial integration – with a particular focus on emerging and developing economies. 

The workshop will be held in Adelaide, Australia on December 1st and 2nd at the University of South Australia (UniSA) City West Campus.

How to use Eye Tracking in Experimental Research Workshop

Eye tracking is an effective tool to conduct cognitive based research required to facilitate specific experiments. It provides behavioural data collection and analysis framework to experimental Economics, Finance and Accounting research, and other areas such as Marketing. Using eye-tracking technology to measure eye movements, pupil dilation and point of gaze, we will be able to improve decision-making among analysts, investors, consumers and patients.

This facility will help us in the business school engage in wider range of multi-disciplinary research with a significant impact, which is aligned with UniSA Research and Innovation Strategic Plan.

The workshop will run by Tobii regional representative, Objective Eye Tracking in two days. In day one, eye tracking technology is introduced and related methods, scripts and outputs are reviewed. In day two, the focus is on hands-on training and running tests using case studies.
