Webinar #3: Meet startups that make the New Bauhaus go to market!

Is the New European Bauhaus compatible with a business approach?

Can we develop solutions that both embed the inspirational values of NEB – sustainable, beautiful, inclusive – and hit a competitive market?

The webinar will explore these questions in company of three startups that developed NEB-by-design solutions, with the support of a dedicated mentoring and funding programme launched by the EIT Community NEB.


Natalia Vera, from Climate KIC, will introduce the NEB Journey proposed by the EIT Community New European Bauhaus to support innovators and accelerate start-ups.

Then three startups will present their projects, how the support received help them reach one step further, and what comes next:

  • Geoffrey Eberle will introduce the NEST solution (Spain), a façade panel technology that creates living spaces for the fauna and flora within the urban environment, while improving building’s acoustic and thermal performance.
  • Anastasya Syvolob will tell us about LIFE, a Ukrainian startup that commercialises affordable prefabricated eco-friendly dome homes
  • Moujan Mahdian will present IMPERFECT (Belgium), an online platform enabling circular construction with streamlined audits of reclaimed materials and integrated environmental impact tracking.

Participants will finally propose recommendations for entrepreneurs and applicants wishing to follow their path.

Date: 24th May, 11:30 CET

NEBULA at the New European Bauhaus Festival, gathering several EU-funded projects

The NEBULA team participated to the New European Bauhaus Festival in Brussels, from 9 to 13 April 2024.

The NEB Festival aims to bring together people from all walks of life to debate and shape our future. The second edition of the Festival explored topics such as shelter and living environments, land and water, fashion and human wellbeing in light of the changing environment. An inclusive and human-centric approach aims to inspire and engage individuals in embracing sustainable choices and fostering a deep connection to the New European Bauhaus movement.

NEBULA organised a booth hosting several EU-Funded projects related to the construction sector. The  REGEN, INPERSO, REHOUSE, Eyes Hearts Hands and RINNO projects featured their respective activities and solutions, and had a unique opportunity for networking.

Visit NEBULA at the NEB Festival!

Join the NEBULA partners in Brussels on 9—13 April at our dedicated booth in the Fair area of the New European Bauhaus Festival.

Hosted by the European Commission, this Festival is an event where imagination meets sustainability and inclusivity for a beautiful future!

You will be able to meet several projects funded by the Built4People Partnership at the NEBULA booth: EHHUR, RINNO, REGEN, INPERSO and REHOUSE.

Come and visit us!

Registration open for the second webinar ‘New Bauhaus Stories’: meet NEB prize awardees!

The second webinar of the NEW BAUHAUS STORIES series  is a satellite event to the NEB Festival, and aims to review and discuss some specific projects with their authors who were awarded a NEB prize.

  • Xifré’s Rooftop: “Floating” Wild Garden

Award category (2021): Buildings renovated in a spirit of circularity

A heritage building rooftop in Barcelona was renovated with a dual purpose: architecture and ecology. Covering an early 19th-century block of ten buildings, this contemporary roof garden creates a “floating” wild space that enhances urban biodiversity and opportunities for social interaction between neighbours.

Speaker: Sergio Carratalá,, CEO and founder, MataAlta Design Studio


  • ERDEN PURE Walls

Award category (2021): Techniques, materials and processes for construction and design

The project from Austria uses prefabricated unstabilised rammed earth as a building material that is 100% natural and recyclable. The material is unstabilised because no cement is added to the mixture: this enables the walls, besides their natural, earthy look, to passively regulate indoor temperature and humidity. The raw material is excavated as waste product from local construction sites. ERDEN engages with local craftsmen, carpenters or ceramicists to co-design each solution.

Speaker: Martin Rauch, Founder and Managing Director, Lehm Ton Erde Baukunst GmbH


  • De Korenbloem housing project with ‘invisible care’

Award category (2022): Prioritising the places and people that need it the most

De Korenbloem is a housing project for vulnerable residents in Belgium. This “care campus” is designed for people with dementia, stroke-related disabilities, and somatic symptom disorder. It combines residential buildings with a network of facilities, such as day-care and a neighbourhood services centre. The project aims to advance adapted, multifunctional and socially integrated care systems that reduce isolation.

Speaker: Kristof Claeys, Managing director, De Korenbloem

Date: 16 April 2024.

Nebula project launches New European Bauhaus webinar series

The Nebula project is launching a series of webinars, entitled ‘New Bauhaus Stories’.

The first episode of the series, held on 14 March 2024 at 10:30 AM CET, will focus on Co-creation in urban regeneration – Insights from New European Bauhaus (NEB) and Cities Mission projects.

The session, co-organised with the CRAFT project, aims to discuss how two ongoing urban regeneration schemes are being co-designed with citizens and various stakeholders from the construction value chain.

Two demonstration sites will present their respective approaches:

  • Pedersgata, Stavanger, Norway [NEB-STAR project]

The Pedersgata area is a mature urban neighbourhood in the city centre of Stavanger, featuring a mix of traditional wooden houses, high-rise buildings, restaurants and shops. The district has the highest poverty rate in the city, but also strong local involvement and an artistic and creative scene.

As a first phase, the NEB-STAR project is testing a series of co-design tools to involve local residents and professionals. In particular, we will present how the architectural office works together with the local chamber of commerce, property owners, social and youth entrepreneurship to regenerate the area with place-based and community-based interventions.

Speakers: Helen and Hard Architecture Office, participants in the NEB-STAR Pedersgata and Site4016 Testbeds


  • Quay district in Bruges, Belgium [Re-value project]

The City of Bruges will present the Quay District (Kaaidistrict) as a structuring element in its climate-neutrality strategy. The Quay District is an urban port area that connects the city centre with the harbour, with a coherent and ambitious vision of the future. In Re-Value, Bruges works together with the harbour authorities, digital twin and climate strategy experts, local cultural organisations, schools and youth, local maker spaces and food producers, to interweave the different functions, driven by spatial efficiency, economic profitability, as drivers for actionable, sustainable lifestyles.

Speakers: from the City of Bruges
