EIT Community invites applicants to develop and submit applications aligned with the New European Bauhaus initiative focused on developing long-term solutions in collaboration with citizens to deliver transformation that match the needs of a wider community.

The present EIT Community call for projects aims to work on activities where citizens and end-users are not only asked to identify relevant challenges of their city aligned with New European Bauhaus challenges, but also empowered to co-create together potential solutions in an ideation process. It is expected to encourage/incentivise the uptake of more sustainable habits, through co-creation of new products, services or solutions with citizens, empowering citizens to implement new solutions in their communities and triggering change by actively influencing local policies.

Further on all proposals need to embed and integrate all the three core New European Bauhaus values (sustainability, aesthetics, inclusion) and all the three key New European Bauhaus principles (multilevel, participatory, transdisciplinary approach) into their projects.
