The EIT Community's New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative has opened its doors for their Connect program once again!

This program is offering funding and other support for projects that focus on citizen-generated solutions to the challenges facing cities, peri-urban and rural areas.

Spearheaded by EIT Food, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Manufacturing, and EIT Urban Mobility, the program is dedicated to support solutions and initiatives that respond to challenges identified by the local community and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between people

Is your project addressing challenges related to food, climate, urban mobility, or manufacturing? And does it incorporate the three core NEB values of sustainability, inclusivity and aesthetics? Then apply today!

New European Bauhaus

The New European Bauhaus is an environmental, social and cultural initiative that is guided by three core values:  

  • Sustainability: from climate goals, to circularity, zero pollution, and biodiversity; 
  • Aesthetics: from design beyond functionality, to quality of experience, lifestyle and well-being; 
  • Inclusion: valorising diversity, equality for all, accessibility, and affordability.  

Supported activities

Below, the EIT Community NEB defines four challenge areas, based on thematic axes of the NEB.

  • Re-connecting with nature;
  • Re-gaining sense of community and belonging;
