The NSBB network (Nordisk samarbeidsgruppe for by og boligforskning) was established in 1997. Its main activity is to hold annual Nordic seminars in urban and housing research, each Nordic country having a turn as a host. With the theme “Urban Transformation, Governance Cultures and Housing Policies”, the seminar will tackle contemporary challenges to urban and housing research especially in the Nordic countries. The effort is to bring together research on socio-economic and physico-structural aspects of urban and regional transformation with research on changing urban governance cultures – drawing further implications to housing policy and planning. The seminar is arranged by YTK – Centre for Urban and Regional Studies / Helsinki University of Technology.
