HOUSERASMUS+ MEDITERRANEAN CONFERENCE
Thank you for the interest you show our project.
The HousErasmus+ project aims to mappt challenges and solutions in student accommodation for international students and trainees. In a series of four regional conferences we aim to gather all relevant stakeholders in the field: students, higher education insitutions, housing providers and policy makers. The conference will share our latest research and showcase practices in the region. It also aims to be a platform for discussion regarding potential practices that could be scaled-up or implemented as policies to improve the housing situation for international student and trainees.
