Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary University goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued.

The JUSTHOUSING project (Just Transition for Housing) will provide internationally relevant research on the societal dimensions of decarbonisation in the housing sector. This work will not only offer policy-relevant research into a key area of climate governance, it will also advance fundamental understanding of the complex interplay of housing, equity and decarbonisation. The project has four objectives:

  1. Assess current retrofitting policies and practices in Ireland with a focus on equity and inclusion;
  2. Identify and map the governance and socio-economic factors that limit the uptake of retrofitting and exacerbate existing social inequalities;
  3. Draw on the knowledge and experience of diverse stakeholders in Ireland to co-produce alternative retrofitting strategies;
  4. Identify best international practice on equitable retrofitting policy and practice and make this relevant to the Irish context.
