Scientifically, ENHR seeks to enhance the quality and relevance of European housing research by
  • stimulating the extension and evaluation of methods for describing the housing situation and for measuring housing problems and needs;
  • promoting the assessment and development of theories concerning the linkages between institutional patterns, individual and collective action, and housing developments;
  • directing most research attention to the complex interplay between market development and state intervention, both across time and among nations.

Organizationally, ENHR seeks to establish
  • a closer collaboration between university-based research and that of sectorially organized institutes for ‘housing’ and/or ‘urban’ research;
  • a lively, regular, and continuous flow of research conferences, workshops and meetings to promote the exchange of ideas and results, and to identify and encourage cross-national as well as cross-disciplinary research projects;
  • widened avenues for publication and communication of research ideas and results through the ENHR Newsletter, and by stimulating themed issues in housing and urban journals as well as joint publications, in order to follow up the conferences and workshop meetings.

ENHR seeks to operate in a democratic way. In addition to a General Assembly held every two years, the ENHR is directed by a democratically elected board, the Coordination Committee. The ENHR Charter contains the rules of the game.

The ENHR thus
  • sponsors major international conferences every two years
  • encourages smaller conferences and seminars every year
  • publishes a comprehensive Newsletter four times a year
  • provides a framework for about twenty Working Groups
  • has an active group of PhD students (new housing researchers)
