Wales Housing Research Conference 2020

Event type: Portfolio
Date: 09/01/2020

Co-hosted by the WISERD Wales Housing Research Network, the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence, Shelter Cymru and Welsh Government. This conference is sponsored by Pobl.

About the conference
Housing and homelessness are high on the political agenda in Wales and there is an appetite for good evidence to inform better policy. In a world where the broader concern is that policy is increasingly influenced by fake news and systematic misinformation, the Wales Housing Research Conference 2020 will showcase research and evaluations on contemporary Welsh housing issues, providing a platform for reflection and knowledge exchange.

Do you wish to present your research?
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts on any housing topic that might question, inform or support housing policies and practices in Wales. Research conducted outside of Wales is very welcome but should still offer lessons to Welsh policy and practice. Abstracts should be submitted via email to wiserd.events@cardiff.ac.uk by 30 September 2019 and should be no longer than 250 words. Decisions on abstracts will be made promptly.
The day will conclude with a drinks reception which will finish at 17:30pm.

Do you wish to attend?
This conference will be useful to local authority housing professionals, representatives from housing associations and third sector organisations, political researchers, academics and students in housing and related fields. It is free to attend and lunch will be provided.
