Cross-KIC New European Bauhaus Call for Citizen Engagement Labs in Cities and Regions

The New European Bauhaus initiative (NEB) is an environmental, social and cultural initiative to combine the aesthetic experience, sustainability, and inclusivity complimenting the European Green Deal. For this Cross-KIC NEB activity, EIT Food will capitalize on existing citizen-centred engagement programmes aligned with the NEB mission.

This call aims to offer partners with a demonstrated link to cities and/or regions, the possibility to implement the concept of a Consumer Engagement Lab and work together with citizens to come up with solutions for challenges that are identified in the New European Bauhaus project around Food. 

Through the Labs process, consumers will co-create new product concepts aiming to be introduced to the market. For the New European Bauhaus project, the labs will be used in the early design phase, where citizens will be engaged to create solutions and concepts for the identified challenges. 

  • Additional information about comparable EIT Food Consumer Engagement Labs is available on the project website.
  • Additional information on the New European Bauhaus and its challenges can be found here.
