The "European Financial Intermediation Theory Research Network" (EuroFIT) is a platform for intense international collaboration on research in financial intermediation theory and policy. It involves collaborators from four different currency zones and policy regimes (United States, United Kingdom, European Union, and Switzerland), as well as from two financial regulators.

At each node of the network small local teams have been working on topics related to financial intermediation theory and policy. EuroFIT intends to foster collaboration between these teams, by providing a centralised outlet for their most recent scientific contributions, and by organising a series of small and focused research workshops. By cultivating interaction between ambitious junior researchers and high-level senior researchers, and by exposing the discussion to a regulatory "reality check", we hope to challenge common wisdom and produce new, policy-relevant, theories that can provide urgently needed guidance to policymakers.
