Network activities - workshops, summer schools, conferences and secondments - enable ESRs, supervisors and partner organisations to meet regularly in person during the three years of the project. These activities are interwoven with the work done in the structured courses and individual research projects.


Two international conferences in Grenoble (m24) and Barcelona (m44) will bring RE-DWELL research into a scientific context. They will continue the successful “Global Dwelling” series organized within the OIKONET project in Barcelona (2014), Bratislava (2015), Manchester (2016) and Volos (2018).

IC1 Global Dwelling: Redesigning housing education for affordable and sustainable housing



IC2 Global Dwelling: Transdisciplinary Perspectives for affordable and sustainabl housing

Summer Schools

Five-day summer schools will take place in Nicosia (m12), Valencia (m24) and Reading (m36). They will be open to external participants (PhD students, young researchers, academics, professionals and community), following the model successfully implemented in the postgraduate OIKONET workshops in Valencia (2017), Lisbon (2018) and Skopje (2019). They will be a core component of the dissemination programme and help to showcase the ongoing research and to subject this to the criticism of external stakeholders.

Summer School 1: Sustainable planning, design and retrofitting of affordable and sustainable housing

Summer School 2: Inclusive co-design and community planning of affordable and sustainable housing



Summer School 3: Innovation in  affordable and sustainable housing


Three-day workshops will be carried out in Lisbon (m16), Zagreb (m28) and Budapest (m40). Each workshop will focus on one of the three main research areas, while exploring the connections with the other two. The purpose of the workshops is to follow-up the development of ESR research, to foster the interlinking between the individual research projects, to carry out specific training activities related to on-going structured courses (research methods and tools, transferrable skills), to engage external stakeholders in the ITN actions (non-academic sectors, local administrations, civic organizations, dealing with sustainable and affordable housing).

During the secondments, ESRs will be able to collaborate with social organizations (BMSZKI); housing associations (CLARION, SYHA), and public (INCASOL) and private (TOWNS) housing developers; to know first-hand the use of digital fabrication technologies in housing construction (Vitruvius FabLab at ISCTE-IUL); to learn about building and urban regulations applied in on-going sustainable housing developments in urban planning departments of Lisbon City Council and Cyprus Land Development Corporation; to have contact with residents in social housing and community developments (INCASOL) and interact with them in co-creation processes (STOWNS); to work with advocates of social housing policies (CERANEO, BMSZKI, MRI) and to examine the design and construction process (CASAIS, Solar Decathlon prototype at UPV).
