New European Bauhaus: Bringing the European Green Deal to life

Initially announced by President Von der Leyen in her State of the Union address and launched by the European Commission in early 2021, the NEB is best understood as a practical application of the European Green Deal, which aims to improve the healthwellbeing and daily lives of both citizens and future generations. 

The EIT Community is ideally placed to support implementation of the NEB as it has created Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem with over 2 000 partners (business, research, education, cities) cooperating in over 60 hubs across Europe. 

By engaging with European innovators and civil society at large, the community is promoting business through start-up creation and growth, as well as contributing to citizen education and engagement. 

This call was launched by EIT Climate-KICEIT Food, EIT Manufacturing, and EIT Urban Mobility.
