Call for proposals: Scaling the New European Bauhaus Ventures

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has launched the ‘EIT Community Booster – Scaling New European Bauhaus Ventures’ that will aim to support the European Union’s New European Bauhaus initiative. This first call will support twenty innovative companies with a budget of up to €50,000 each to accelerate solutions integrating sustainability (including climate goals, circularity, zero pollution and biodiversity), aesthetics (quality of experience and style, beyond functionality) and inclusion (including diversity first, securing accessibility and affordability).

This call is part of a wider €5 million budget for New European Bauhaus activities supported by the new EIT Community in 2021 to 2022, coordinated by EIT Climate-KIC in collaboration with EIT Digital, EIT Food, EIT Manufacturing and EIT Urban Mobility, that aims to:

  • Provide acceleration services and support New European Bauhaus-related entrepreneurs, innovators and ventures
  • Create and mobilise citizen driven initiatives
  • Offer entrepreneurial training activities and education resources in upskilling and lifelong learning

The EIT Community Booster call is open to start-ups and businesses that wish to scale-up their activities, and is open until 17 December 2021. A pilot phase of this Community Booster launched early 2021 has already supported 13 ventures with a total of €650,000.

The New European Bauhaus is going from design to concrete results thanks to the direct support to European innovators by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. The initiative contributes to the European Green Deal, but also to our new ambitious EU Missions under Horizon Europe. I look forward to all innovative ideas and products from talented European entrepreneurs for our public spaces and Europe’s sustainable growth, ”  said Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.

Throughout 2021, the EIT Community has supported the first phase of the New European Bauhaus through activities aiming to increase citizens’ engagement and involve communities in the co-design of sustainable public spaces to deliver on the goals of the European Green Deal.

Successful EIT Community activities for the New European Bauhaus already underway include:

  • Helping innovators and entrepreneurs from Central and Eastern Europe to develop and launch their business in relation to the New European Bauhaus thanks to the EIT Jumpstarter programme
  • Awarding grants for citizen-led projects, from transforming parking spaces into playgrounds and working with the elderly, to climate-proof heritage sites
  • Integrating a specific New European Bauhaus’ focus within the 2021 Climathon and hackathons of EIT Digital, EIT Food and EIT Urban Mobility. This ‘hackathon’ gathers diverse participants from 150 towns and cities around the world to raise climate awareness, disrupt the status-quo, and rethink the spaces we live in and the future we want as citizens
