Sofia, Bulgaria (depending on Covid-19 restrictions, alternative remote options might be offered)

As part of the PusH (Precarious Housing in Europe) project consortium, the Cluster "Social sPACe based research in built Environment" (SPACE) invites students of University for Continuing Education Krems (UWK) to participate in PusH's Summer School 2022.

The lack of decent, affordable housing and the occurrence of informal, illegal, or unsafe housing across all EU Member States poses a threat to social inclusion in the EU, and hinders the mobility of EU citizens and the integration of third-country nationals. However, so far the issue has not been taken up systematically in curricula in higher education across Europe.

On this basis, we are developing learning materials on this topic within the PusH partnership. During our summer school, we combine these with hands-on activities to ensure an engaging learning atmosphere. We warmly invite students and lecturers to join us and learn more about one of the pressing issues of our time.


  • Reasons for challenges and possible solutions of precarious housing – incl. discussions with policy makers and social workers
  • Field trips and meetings with people living in precarious housing with focus on segregated Roma settlements near Sofia
  • Practical tasks, incl. international teamwork, development of materials and exchanges with European researchers


Funding of travel costs and accommodation available for students and faculty of University for Continuing Education Krems.
