The teaching and research area for real estate project development at RWTH Aachen University investigates and compares the control systems of social housing subsidies for selected federal states. In the context of this work, there has been an increased interest in an overarching, nationwide exchange between planners, public authorities, development banks, project developers and social housing stockholders.

The conference created a platform for the different practice actors of individual countries and also offered an overview of the different support systems nationwide. The following three topics formed the main focus of the conference:

Financing and application for funding - principles, processes and future trends
Planning and construction requirements - quality assurance versus standardization
Development and Inventory - Chances, Tips and Best Practice Examples

For each of these topics, selected speakers from the field gave a lecture. The subsequent panel discussions offered room for further questions and to deepen individual topics. The event was held by the Real Estate Project Development Department of RWTH Aachen, which is dedicated to real estate issues in the context of architecture and urban development.
