TT - FIT=ULC=Triffin International Foundation II

Triffin International Foundation

"The aims that are pursued by the Triffin International Foundation (FIT), which is chaired by Alexandre Lamfalussy, are threefold.

First of all, the Foundation promotes research on the life and work of the economist Robert Triffin (1911-1993), attaching particular value to the role he played as an advocate of European integration.

It also supports education in the field of monetary integration through the Robert Triffin Chair.

Finally, the Foundation seeks to enhance the debate on a necessary reform of the international monetary system as part of the Triffin 21 Initiative, which is among others, animated by Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa.

Reaching out to a wide audience, and especially to the younger generations, the FIT organises and supports initiatives of printed and electronic publications, workshops, seminars, conferences, lectures, etc. All of this is possible thanks to the generous support of the Compagnia di San Paolo..."
