At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, savings banks were created in many European countries : the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Austria. Now, 200 years later, savings banks still play an essential role in the provision of financial services and financial knowledge to society. At the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the Austrian savings banks, the Austrian savings banks association is the host of the ESBG financial history workshop dedicated to the theme "Savings banks spreading financial knowledge". Experts from Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, and other European countries will each highlight a specific aspect of financial education and the way savings banks have helped spread the knowledge.
