Workshop: New ways forward for Swedish public housing policy

In 2016, Formas, the Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development, was tasked by the Swedish government to review public housing policy. As part of this initiative, ArkDes ThinkTank, Formas and IQ Samhällsbyggnad, the Swedish Centre for Innovation and Quality in the Built Environment, invite you to participate in an afternoon of workshops, panel discussions and mingle.

The event is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to meet and exchange experiences and find new ways forward for public housing policy. The workshop is aimed at professionals, researchers and people working in the housing sector. There will be three workshops on different themes, and you can choose to register for one.


Moderator: Pernilla Glaser, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, urban development division
