New Challenges for Affordable Housing in Europe – Summer School for Young Professionals

by | Jun 7, 2018


For the second time the Summer School for young housing professionals takes place in Bochum from July 16-20.

The housing sector in Europe is changing. In urban hot spots, housing that is affordable for all groups of society is becoming scarce, with high demand driving up rental prices and the rise of construction costs making the financing of social housing even more difficult than before. In disadvantaged neighbourhoods, inhabitants need to be motivated to stabilise the neighbourhood and prevent a downward spiral. New technologies offer opportunities, but housing providers are still hesitant to digitise their business. Disruptive changes are ahead, and it is high time to think about developments in the core business and the potentials innovations offer for value creation.

The European Summer School is brought to you by EFL, EBZ – European Education Centre for Housing and Real Estate , Housing Europe – the European Federation of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing and the Housing Initiative for Eastern Europe IWO. Learn from each other, share your ideas, be part of Europe
