What makes Eurhonet unique?

While we highly value and regularly welcome the contribution of outside experts during our activities, we want to make sure that our core community can share confidently and openly with their counterparts. Therefore, our members are public and social housing providers only.

We are collaborative, not competitive. We share solutions and strategies, but we are non-commercial. Our strong sense of solidarity allows us to work together on all issues affecting our organisations, from developing future-proof strategies to tackling problems in our day-to-day work.

It is crucial to look beyond our national borders when striving for excellence in our sector. The European perspective allows us to benchmark our practices against a much broader set of standards. While our cultural and socioeconomic contexts may be different, our challenges are often the same (and they certainly don’t stop at borders!). Learning from diverse experiences, we can develop a more nuanced approach to problem-solving, build joint initiatives, and avoid working in isolation. Find out more about the importance of a European perspective.

Our annual programme of activities is designed to provide opportunities for employees at all levels and in all roles to develop skills, learn, and exchange. Take a look at our annual reports to learn more!

We respond to the feedback of our members, using their inputs to tailor our upcoming activities. Thanks to the presence of member organisations in our governance structure, we are constantly guided by the needs and expectations of our network. Our Topic Groups are led by practitioners, who are empowered to set their own agendas according to members’ priorities.

Our Brussels Secretariat is ideally placed to report on the broader European housing landscape and identify opportunities for EU-funded projects. We have a strong collaboration with Housing Europe, regularly feeding the experiences of our members into their evidence-based policy mechanism.
