ENHR Conferences

ENHR aims to organise a major conference every year. Each conference takes place in a different country and is organised by a Local Organising Committee (LOC). These conferences offer workshops, plenaries and excursions.

Upcoming conferences

The 2023 conference will be held in Lodz (Poland) on 28-30 June.
Theme: “Urban regeneration: its shines and shadows”.

ENHR statement on in-person conferences
Face-to-face discussions are hard to duplicate online, and we believe that personal in-person interactions strengthen our network and can lead to important collaborations via better communication, and building stronger relations and trust. Place is central to what we study so we convene in a different European city every year, allowing scholars to engage with the local context of situate its housing in context.

We recognise that conferences have environmental implications and so are taking important steps to reduce our carbon footprint such as promoting sustainable travel and environmentally aware catering. For those who cannot or do not want to attend in person we will offer the option of attending plenary sessions (only) remotely, but we hope many members will take part in the full conference in Barcelona in August 2022.
