Housing Stock Management
Efficiency Analysis of Housing Administration in Slovakia and Development of Concepts for Education and Practical Training.
An international German-Slovak research project was run in 2005 – 2007. It aimed to analyse effectiveness of housing management in Slovakia, propose recommendations for changes in the legislation framework and compile a concept for education and training of managers of the housing stock. The project is conducted in partnership with German organisations InWIS and IWO and with an expertise input from the Slovak Ministry of Construction and Regional Development; the First Construction Savings Bank, Inc. (PSS, a.s.); the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy and the German Federal Ministry for Transport, Construction and Housing. The project also derived knowledge and experience from a broad spectrum of experts in the field of housing stock management who were involved in the Project Advisory Board. Those were representatives of professional associations of the housing stock managers, as well as owners’ associations, professional institutions, above mentioned ministries, experts from banks and the academic sector. AINova also co-operated with the Institute of State and Law of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in proposing measures to improve the legal framework. The project was completed, and the results presented at the final conference organised by the Ministry of Construction and Regional Development of the Slovak Republic in November 2007. It was agreed by the Slovak partners that a follow-up of the project in the form of a pilot educational product for housing stock managers would be welcomed.
