Chair in Dignified and Sustainable Housing

The purpose of the Chair is to be a space for reflection aimed at analysing housing policies from a social and environmental perspective, without losing sight of their financial and economic scope.

The Chair in Dignified and Sustainable Housing of the UPF Barcelona School of Management was born from the joint will between the UPF-BSM and the Fundación Metropolitan House to study the real estate sector in order to adapt it to today, with regulations that become benefits for citizens and companies, and subsequently transfer reflections to the main interest groups.

To meet the objectives defined in the framework of the Chair, various research, training, awareness-raising, and knowledge transfer activities will be carried out in different areas, with the main objective being to generate educational, scientific, and informative knowledge in the real estate sector.

Objectives

The Chair has the following objectives:

  • Generate and develop knowledge about housing policies from economic, fiscal and financial, social and management perspectives, aimed at improving the quality of life of citizens, preserving the environment, and improving the efficiency and sustainability of the real estate sector. 
  • Develop activities for the transfer of knowledge and dissemination of general knowledge, from the organization of seminars and conferences, publication of informative articles, or preparation of case studies, among others.
  • Develop activities related to the education and training of professionals in the real estate sector, based on the creation of training programs, internships in real estate companies, etc.
