Engineering the New European Bauhaus: Reframing the Bauhaus framework from theory to practice

28 September 2022, Online via Zoom

The European Council of Civil Engineers organized an online event on the topic "Engineering the New European Bauhaus: Reframing the Bauhaus framework from theory to practice".




The New European Bauhaus is an initiative by the European Commission which aims to connect the European Green Deal to our living spaces and experiences. It calls on all of us, be it citizens, experts, businesses, or institutions, to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes, minds, and souls. In addition to creating a platform for experimentation and connection, the initiative supports positive change also by providing access to EU funding for beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive projects.

The European Council of Civil Engineers organized the online event "Engineering the New European Bauhaus: Reframing the Bauhaus framework from theory to practice" in an effort to shed some light on the NEB framework from the point of view of civil engineers, bringing the focus from theory to practice.

What does "beautiful – sustainable – together" mean for civil engineers? How can civil engineers apply the three NEB principles in their work and projects? How can civil engineers contribute to the success of the NEB initiative?

We invite you to join us for an afternoon of interesting presentations and a panel discussion on the NEB initiative through the eyes of the civil engineering community. Let's open a dialogue and share our views and experiences.
