Call for proposals: Citizen Engagement Activities
The EIT Community invites applicants to develop and submit applications aligned with the New European Bauhaus initiative focused on developing long-term solutions in collaboration with citizens to deliver transformation that match the needs of a wider community.
The present EIT Community call for projects aims to work on activities where citizens and end-users are not only asked to identify relevant challenges of their city aligned with New European Bauhaus challenges, but also empowered to co-create together potential solutions in an ideation process. It is expected to encourage/incentivize the uptake of more sustainable habits, through co-creation of new products, services or solutions with citizens, empowering citizens to implement new solutions in their communities and triggering change by actively influencing local policies.

Demonstrate and showcase the role citizens and end-users can play in improving the quality of life in the city they are living in through the implementation of the New European Bauhaus.
Strengthen transdisciplinary, intergenerational and intersectoral collaboration by convening diverse stakeholder groups through citizen engagement activities.
