On October 1st, the project “RE-DWELL: Delivering affordable and sustainable housing in Europe”, a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) co-financed by the H2020 programme, has started its activities.

Housing in many European countries has become unaffordable for many. In fact, it is now considered to be one of the most important national issues in Europe and its solution is proving very challenging. RE-DWELL will train a new generation of professionals with the transdisciplinary skills which are needed to address the urgent need of affordable and sustainable housing, a major challenge for European societies.

15 early-stage researchers will be recruited for this project to carry out transdisciplinary research encompassing design planning and building, community participation, and policy and financing. Their work will be supervised by an international board of experts from a variety of academic and professional fields. Researchers will carry out their work as PhD students in the host academic institution with secondments taking place at the professional organizations participating in the network.

The RE-DWELL consortium consists of 10 universities and 12 non-academic partner organisations representing 9 European countries (Spain, France, UK, Croatia, Hungary, Cyprus, Netherlands, Portugal and Belgium). The project is coordinated by the School of Architecture La Salle, Ramon Llull University, Barcelona, Spain. Carla Sentieri Omarrementería, Eduardo de Miguel Arbones y Begoña Serrano Lanzarote will support the project and co-supervise one researcher who will be based at ETSA – UPV and co-supervise four researchers inside the project.
