Read the New European Bauhaus NEXUS report that lays out this major vision and points to the research needs under Horizon Europe and other EU funding programmes. Nature-based Solutions, such as engineered wood, will play a major role in climate change mitigation. For this to take scale, much more research, innovation and co-creation across all involved disciplines is needed to unlock their potential for transforming the built environment into a massive carbon sink.
The ‘Horizon Europe-New European Bauhaus Nexus Report’ (2022) is an independent expert report. The report offers a set of guiding principles that can shape the goals and ambitions of the New European Bauhaus initiative. The recommendations aim to support the New European Bauhaus core values – sustainability, inclusion, and aesthetics. The recommendations are based on the current and future organisational structures and timeframes of the Horizon Europe research and innovation framework programme. They consider opportunities for the funding period 20212022, mid-term goals for the period 2023-2024, and long-term actions beyond 2024 that reflect the transdisciplinary and trans-sectoral vision of the New European Bauhaus. The report also provides a roadmap with strategic priorities and associated benchmarks that describe a possible path forward for European society and its response to the climate crisis, together with the EU’s global partners.
