New European Bauhaus Prize 2024 open for applications
As of 2 October 2023, the European Commission (EC) is opening applications for the 2024 New European Bauhaus (NEB) Prizes. After over 4,500 applications received in total for the past editions, the NEB Prizes 2024 will this year award 20 exemplary innovative projects and concepts that represent sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusiveness. For the first time this year, the EC will welcome applications of projects and concepts in Ukraine in addition to EU Member States and the Western Balkans. The 'Special Recognition to Ukraine's Reconstruction and Recovery Effort' prizes will recognise projects and concepts contributing to Ukraine's recovery and reconstruction in line with the New European Bauhaus values. Another new feature this year is a focus on projects and concepts from EU's regions facing socio-economic issues or challenges in the twin digital and green transition.
The 2024 Prizes will reward existing projects as well as concepts developed by young talents under four categories:
- Reconnecting with nature;
- Regaining a sense of belonging;
- Prioritising the places and people that need it the most;
- Shaping a circular industrial ecosystem and supporting life cycle thinking.
The 2024 Prizes will be awarded to 20 winners who will receive prizes of up to €30,000, as well as a communications package to help them further develop and promote their projects and concepts. They will be announced during the New European Bauhaus Festival, taking place in Brussels from 17 to 21 April 2024.
Applications are open until 10 November 2023 at 19:00 CET. Applicants of all nationalities and backgrounds are eligible if their concepts and projects are implemented in the EU, the Western Balkans or Ukraine. The applications should be submitted through the official New European Bauhaus Prizes platform.
