On October 1st, the project RE-DWELL, 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, to be contracted for this project, will carry out a transdisciplinary research encompassing design planning and building, community participation, and policy and financing. Their work will be supervised by a qualified 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 stages in 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.
Pacte will recruit an early stage researcher who will conduct his/her PhD research starting 2021.
