EIT launches Community Booster to support New European Bauhaus initiative
On 18 October, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) launched the ‘EIT Community Booster – Scaling New European Bauhaus Ventures', in order to support the New European Bauhaus initiative. This first call will support 20 innovative companies with a budget of up to €50,000 each to accelerate solutions integrating sustainability (from climate goals to circularity, zero pollution, and biodiversity), aesthetics (quality of experience and style, beyond functionality), and inclusion (including diversity first, securing accessibility and affordability).
This call is part of a wider €5 million budget for New European Bauhaus activities supported by the new EIT Community in 2021 to 2022. The EIT Community Booster call is open until 17 December 2021. Start-ups and scale-ups are encouraged to apply and scale their venture. A pilot phase of this Community Booster launched in early 2021 has already supported 13 ventures with a total of €650,000.
