European Urban Initiative (EUI) – Innovative Actions: First Call for proposals!

EUI has officially launched its first Innovative Actions Call with a budget of EUR 50 million in support to New European Bauhaus demonstrators! The Call is open until 19 January 2023 14h CET. Cities are invited to submit their innovative ideas and to join the path to sustainable urban development.

This present Call builds on core principles of the emblematic New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative.

The NEB is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative connecting the European Green Deal to our living spaces and experiences, in aiming of making Europe climate-neutral by 2050. The EUI Call will translate the NEB core values and deliver tangible, real-life examples.

Projects interested in applying should embody the values of sustainability, inclusiveness and aesthetics to the very maximum extent of ambition. While the Call is not prescriptive, cities are invited to consider the four following themes which have the greatest potential to generate innovative solutions:

  • circular economy and carbon neutrality
  • preservation of cultural heritage
  • adaptation of buildings for affordable housing solutions
  • regeneration of urban spaces.
