The ResearchLab New Social Housing is coordinated by a Curatorial Team responsible for proposing the thematic focus, designing the programme and selecting the participants. For every Summer School a Faculty consisting of internationally renowned scholars in diverse fields and disciplines is nominated. The members of the faculty commit themselves to commenting on the submitted thesis projects as well as to active participation in the organisation of the Summer School – by holding a talk, by participating in a round table, by organizing a workshop and/or by carrying out Fieldwork. The faculty members hold expertise in all relevant fields of housing research (urban development and regeneration, community organising, architecture and housing construction, land policy and land management, spatial planning, sociology, real estate and project development, etc.).
An international Advisory Board supports the design and organization of the Summer School.
