Expression of interest is now open for the East Of England’s inaugural exchange to Copenhagen.

Should you wish to discuss the exchange further or provisionally secure a place, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the team.


The East of England Exchange is a newly formed networking forum allowing built environment professionals to share and exchange best practice, ideas and knowledge both within the United Kingdom and Internationally.

The inaugural exchange will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. Often the epitome of best practice throughout Europe and the UK. Copenhagen have offered to host and share approaches to the design and delivery of social housing to the exchange programme.

It is widely considered that social housing is becoming a more relevant and well discussed topic area. Local Authorities are finding new ways of delivering housing on council own sites, the like of which hasn’t been seen for a generation; the recently awarded RIBA Stirling Prize (2019) winner being case in point. Denmark has a strong and successful history of delivering social housing schemes and this exchange provides a great opportunity to visit, explore and question methods and approaches.

The Exchange is pleased to present a three-day trip, open to both public and private professionals throughout the UK. The exchange will allow participants the opportunities to meet some of Denmark’s key figures in the Social Housing, design and delivery sectors.
