In January 2021, the European Commission launched the New European Bauhaus – a creative and interdisciplinary initiative to drive the green transformation of our continent. The New European Bauhaus sets out to support, facilitate, and accelerate innovations at the crossroads of art, science and technology. It is a call to action and a collective effort to imagine and build a future that is sustainable, inclusive and beautiful. To build this future, it needs a team of architects, makers, operators and supporters with many different skill sets. Therefore, fostering entrepreneurial ecosystems which thrive through cross-disciplinary collaboration is a key factor for transferring this ambitious vision into real-world solutions.
