Closing Date: 13/03/2023
Funding for innovative ventures driving sustainable change for European cities, industries, climate, food, wellbeing and overall quality of life.
The EIT Community New European Bauhaus (EIT Community NEB) is led by EIT Climate-KIC with participation of EIT Digital, EIT Food, EIT Manufacturing and EIT Urban Mobility. The mission aims to bridge the gap between science and technology on the one hand, and arts and culture on the other, promoting business through start-ups, ideation and education, as well as citizen education and engagement. With that purpose, EIT Community NEB engages with European innovators to overcome fragmentations in the European innovation landscape, works together with universities and stakeholders in the identification of problems and solutions, and ensures civil society engagement in the NEB movement
The aim of the New European Bauhaus Booster 2.0 Call for Proposals is to identify and work with start-ups integrating simultaneously the three core dimensions of the NEB in their operations, products and services.
The activity aims to provide NEB and business and entrepreneurship support to those Start-ups with a clear concept, product or vision that could benefit from the EIT Community contribution. Culture and Creative sectors and industries are welcome into the Call.
The range of EIT Community NEB supported activities includes a list of challenges thematically arranged across four Thematic Axes and sub-challenges:
- Thematic Axis 1 – Reconnecting with nature.
- Thematic Axis 2 – Regaining a sense of belonging.
- Thematic Axis 3 – Prioritising the places and people that need it most.
- Thematic Axis 4 – Fostering long-term, life-cycle and integrated thinking in the industrial ecosystem.
Applicants’ services and products must address at least one of the NEB Thematic Axes indicating one or more sub-challenges in the local ecosystem and with potential to scale-up. In addition, the services and products must clearly address an identified social challenge, ideally determined with a specific social group who would benefit from the existence of such a product or service.
