A global multidisciplinary network on housing research and learning.
OIKONET is a network of 34 schools of architecture and planning, research groups, professional and community organizations, and local administrations from 25 countries in Europe and around the world. The goal of the network is to promote innovation in the study of dwelling at a global scale by interlinking three areas: pedagogy, research and community participation. The activities of this three year project (2013-16) are co-funded by the European Union through the EACEA. This website provides information about the project activities to partners and to other parties interested in the work of the network.
