ENHR strengthens academic contacts

The European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) was established in 1988 to provide an organizational platform for institutions and individuals in (and outside) Europe, who are actively engaged in housing research. It now has about 150 individual members and nearly 500 employees from 75 institutional members, representing almost every country in Europe. Although ENHR is a European network, researchers from outside Europe are also very welcome to join.

ENHR brings housing researchers together

ENHR is a platform for both young and  experienced housing researchers and housing sector specialists to meet and discuss research approaches and outcome, compare housing policies in European countries, and join forces to find research funding and explore publication options. ENHR aims to organise a major conference every year. These conferences offer workshops, plenaries and excursions.

ENHR members come from all over Europe

The network has members representing almost every country in Europe and a fair number of non-European countries. ENHR offers housing specialists from North and South, East and West access to a world of knowledge and experience that enhances the research of network members. They meet at ENHR conferences and working groups meetings which take place throughout the year in different parts of Europe.

ENHR has more than 25 working groups

The network has about twenty-five working groups on topics ranging from collaborative housing to welfare policy. Their purpose is to further research on particular topics in the field of housing and urban studies. Members of working groups represent a variety of academic disciplines. Each working groups organises meetings for its members at least once a year, discussing papers and books in progress, and normally hosts a workshop during the annual ENHR conference.
