Housing Europe organises in collaboration with its member organisation in Brussels, The Housing Association of the Brussels Capital Region, SLRB a seminar on the renovation of social housing in Europe.

The public procurement rules, the construction and safety standards and the constraints of environmental quality are reinforced, multiplying the steps and the stakeholders entailed in any renovation project in the social housing sector. A new reality that is to observe pretty all around Europe.

A half-day workshop dedicated to the different best practices and approaches that are already effective on the ground, accelerating the refurbishment of social homes across the continent.
