Early Careers Programme

A programme designed for trainees and early careers professionals to gain insights into the European housing landscape, the process of policy-making, and the role of knowledge exchange networks.

Eurhonet provides professional development opportunities to colleagues at all stages of their careers. The Early Careers Programme takes place once a year in Brussels, Belgium – the heart of the European Union. The Programme is specifically designed for trainees and early careers professionals to build professional skills and broaden their knowledge of the European housing landscape. It also serves as a way to attract new talent to the public and social housing sector.

The 3-day programme welcomes a small group of participants coming from different member organisations. Through a combination of study visits (including to the European Parliament and the European Council), workshops, and seminars, participants will gain an understanding of the process of EU policymaking and how this impacts our daily work, as well as the role of knowledge exchange networks in our sector. The group experience helps to involve the next generation of colleagues in knowledge-sharing and network building, as well as develop team building skills and build professional connections.
