HATs will contribute to raising the qualification and education standards and overall achieving a greater professionalization within the Housing sector.
These educational contents will address the European need for comprehensive online Housing courses and will be mainly addressed to:
- Professionals involved in the housing field (e.g. real-estate conveyancers, notary public, judges, condominiums managers, attorneys, policymakers, consumers/tenants associations).
- Administration officers and policymakers working in local, regional and national authorities, who will gain specific skills to address the recurring issues and the contentious problems that characterize the contemporary housing policies.
- Postgraduate students of different disciplines (law, sociology, social work, economy, finances, sociology, anthropology, architecture, urban design, engineering), that have only superficially and partially studied housing in their degrees will get specialized training in housing studies.
The IO1 online OERs (Online Educational Resources) will be clustered in 4 independent modules:
- Housing and human rights (Module 1) covering aspects such as Concept of housing, Housing and Ownership as a human right in Europe, Affordable housing and Housing development.
- Housing tenures (Module 2) which will encompass Homeownership, Rented property in the EU and Intermediate tenures in Europe.
- Real estate stakeholders (Module 3): Role of real estate stakeholders in a European context, Housing taxation and Housing repair and neighbourhood regeneration.
- Proptech (Module 4) addressing technology-related contents such as Blockchain and its features; building a better property registry with blockchain technology and the potential of smart contracts.
