Among the many areas of dialogue between economics and educational sciences, one common object of study has now clearly emerged: economic and financial education, which was created to raise the literacy levels of the adult population and young people. Indeed, more and more decisions in everyday life are linked to economic and financial aspects. The current economic and financial knowledge of the population is not adequate to the needs as it comes mainly from financial socialisation processes; it is instead necessary for schools and not only the banking and insurance world to deal with these new educational processes. However, in order to introduce these topics, schools must train teachers who do not have adequate knowledge. In Romania, this is a recent issue, which is why it was decided to launch a new research project.
