EC Launches New European Bauhaus Initiative
Posted: 15 February, 2021
The European Commission has launched the co-design phase of the New European Bauhaus. The New European Bauhaus is an environmental, economic and cultural project, aiming to combine design, sustainability, accessibility, affordability and investment in order to help deliver the European Green Deal. It is a cross-sectoral and inclusive initiative and the involvement of the education sector, in all its facets, is of central importance.
The goal of the design phase is to shape the concept by exploring ideas, identifying the most urgent needs and challenges, and to connect interested parties. As one element of the design phase, this spring, the Commission will launch, the first edition of the New European Bauhaus prize.
This design phase will lead to the opening of calls for proposals in autumn this year to bring to life New European Bauhaus ideas in at least five EU Member States, through the use of EU funds at national and regional level.
The New European Bauhaus website will be the key tool of the co-design phase and those interested are invited to visit it and discover the opportunities and provide input and ideas for the New European Bauhaus community.
