“Housing and New Technologies: New methodologies and paradigms in housing research”
Kick off webinar of the ENHR Working Group in preparation “Housing and New Technologies”
January 20, 2021. 4pm to 7pm, CET
Platform: Microsoft teams.
New technologies, such as big data analysis, blockchain, crowdfunding, the internet of things (IoT), domotics, robotics, proptech or digital printing, are expected to make an impact on housing itself, as well as the theories and methodologies that housing researchers use in their research projects. These new technologies change, for example, the way we build, sell, rent, or interact with our homes, or even how we methodologically deal with this field of research.
This is the kick off webinar of the new Working Group “Housing and New Technologies” within the European Network for Housing Research, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Michel Vols (University of Groningen, The Netherlands) and Dr. Rosa M. Garcia-Teruel (UNESCO Housing Chair, University Rovira i Virgili, Spain).
