RE-DWELL will be present at the International  Social Housing Festival, Helsinki


with a workshop and exhibition on Tuesday June 14 at 10:30–13:30 Workshop



This session, led by the Marie Curie RE-DWELL Innovative Training Network, will take the format of an interactive research workshop with the aim of developing a roadmap to address the urgent issues at stake in the delivery of affordable and sustainable housing across Europe: the priorities, the short and long-term strategies, and the envisaged scenarios. The discussion will be supported with an exhibition showing the 15 ongoing projects by the early stage PhD researchers who are working closely with partner organisations (industry, housing associations, administrations) across Europe.


The workshop will begin with an introduction to RE-DWELL’s holistic, transdisciplinary approach to affordable and sustainable housing. Participants in this session will be organized in  break out groups each with a particular theme relating to the ongoing research projects. Here participants will discuss dimensions of the problem in small groups, each led by early stage researcher, supported by the academic supervisors. The break out groups will provide an opportunity to learn about cutting edge housing research, to contribute to the development of the ESR projects and to interact with colleagues across Europe.


The group discussions will lead to a plenary session in which a series of policy recommendations will be formulated. These will be assembled into a manifesto for affordable and sustainable housing which will be disseminated after the festival in the RE-DWELL media channels. 


The aim of the workshop is to foster knowledge exchange between researchers, practitioners and policy makers involved in affordable and sustainable housing provision.
