EqualHouse aims to identify, analyse and tackle the most significant dimensions of housing inequality across Europe. Designed with both transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary elements, EqualHouse will provide housing policymakers and other key stakeholders with robust, evidence-based guidance on how to address these inequalities in a sustainable, inclusive and affordable way. The project involves a consortium of 12 project partners from around Europe and is funded by the 2023 EU Horizon programme. European Union flag
