Clemens Deilmann, Oliver Lerbs, Maja Lorbek (Eds.)

Under the lead of the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) a consortium of German research institutes examined future challenges for single-family homes from an interdisciplinary perspective. The project 'Homes-uP? Single-Family Homes under Pressure?' funded by the Leibniz Association is also based on a range of networking activities.

One such event was the conference in Mannheim, jointly organized by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) and the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The conference, which took place on 13th and 14th October 2016, showcased new international research on future development of single-family homes and suburban areas.

The two-day conference was organized in thematic sessions, the issues addressed included cultural and structural classification of the single-family housing stock, sustainability and resources, trajectories of use, actors and stakeholders as well the topics of valuation and market implications. This volume is a compilation of extended abstracts made available by the conference participants.
