EIT Cross-KIC contributes to New European Bauhaus (NEB) Initiative from the European Commission

EIT Food Community will be part of projects that address urban food challenges and include local governance

In 2021, the European Commission launched the New European Bauhaus (NEB), an initiative designed to transform our cities into more sustainable ones with higher social value, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic. The EIT Cross-KIC will contribute to this initiative by addressing urban food systems challenges through open calls for projects directed at implementing innovative activities, educational programmes and citizen engagement. 

This EIT Cross-Knowledge Innovation Community (x-KIC) Initiative aims to combine aesthetics, sustainability, circularity, and inclusiveness to help deliver the European Green Deal. 

The EIT Community seeks to contribute to develop innovative and collaborative models of local governance and engage with citizens and local stakeholders in order to identify urban emblematic projects that simultaneously address the challenges of the European Green Deal and post-COVID-19 pandemic response. 

The EIT x-KICs will undertake actions to mobilise public-private pan-European ecosystems with a focus on developing and supporting talent and skills, through education programmes, and on delivering and showcasing high impact, high-value innovations from their pipelines. 

In 2021 the mission will address the following specific objectives:

  • Supporting NEB related entrepreneurs and innovators to test interest, bring their ideas into the market and scale them up.
  • Providing NEB related entrepreneurs and innovators with education resources on entrepreneurship, and thereby spreading the NEB mindset and embedding it into the curricula of the KICs’ partners.
  • Mobilising NEB bottom-up citizen driven initiatives and ideas all across-Europe building on the EIT’s ecosystem as Europe’s largest innovation community.
