The working group within the ENHR network
The central theme of this working group is Housing and living conditions of ageing populations. The ENHR Network provides excellent opportunities to meet researchers from all over Europe (and the World) in paper presentations/discussions as well as plenary activities and social events. From our point of view, this has become the main role of the network. The coordinators and the participants in the group are working in constellations and minor networks with different initiatives and projects, within the theme of the working group. These initiatives cannot be regarded as mainly ENHR activities. The ENHR has got an overriding meeting and knowledge dissemination based role, which is an important role indeed. The working group is a regular participant in the ENHR conference.

Activities in the future
The WG plans to be present at the ENHR 2018 conference in Uppsala, Sweden. Interested participants are encouraged to submit abstracts and papers directly on the conference website and are welcome to contact any of the coordinators for further information about the participation in the conference as well as the working group.

Recent activities
During the year the WG organised a successful workshop at the ENHR 2017 conference in Tirana, Albania, September 4-6. The workshop had 11 abstracts submitted and the work-shop proved an excellent opportunity to present current research and development work. In addition it provided a good forum for discussion. It is apparent that there is an on-going interest in ageing issues around the world where housing and living conditions are high on the policy agenda

Members – Participants
There are no registered members of the group, but it consists of researchers active or interested in the field, interested persons and participants in the group activities.
