Scaling New European Bauhaus ventures

Are you a startup or scaleup developing innovative solutions that make Europe more sustainable, inclusive and improve citizens’ quality of life?

On a mission to foster the New European Bauhaus transformation, the EIT Community is looking for the most innovative ventures driving sustainable change for cities, industry, climate, food, wellbeing and overall quality of life in order to support their business growth and help them become international gamechangers.

Launched by the European Commission, the New European Bauhaus translates the European Green Deal into a tangible, positive experience in which all Europeans can participate and progress together. With this in mind, the EIT Community Booster is set to identify and support the startups and scaleups integrating the three core dimensions of the New European Bauhaus:

  • sustainability, from climate goals, to circularity, zero pollution, and biodiversity
  • aesthetics, quality of experience and style, beyond functionality
  • inclusion, from valorising diversity, to securing accessibility and affordability
