About ENHR

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. The network now has about 700 members representing almost every country in Europe and a fair number of non-European countries. Professor of Housing Systems Peter Boelhouwer (Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands) is Chair of ENHR.

ENHR is where housing specialists from North and South, East and West should feel they are not in an isolated position but part of a housing research network that can bring their research efforts on a higher level.

ENHR is the platform for young as well as experienced housing researchers and housing sector specialists to meet and discuss research approaches and outcome, compare housing policies in European countries, join forces in finding research funding and publication options in magazines and books. For this, about twenty-five Working Groups, ranging from Collaborative Housing to Welfare policy are active.

The New Housing Researchers Colloquium, taking place during ENHR conferences every two years, offers PhDs their own platform and network opportunities. It also provide an opportunity for young researchers to present and discuss their work with their counterparts, exchange ideas and experiences and receive valuable feedback from ENHR mentors.
