The European Commission proposed to establish a sixth mission under Horizon Europe dedicated to the New European Bauhaus to make the green transformation of the built environment more accessible, affordable and attractive to neighbourhoods.
The EC launched a survey to shape this potential future mission. The purpose of this targeted consultation is to gather the views of the professional community on the R&I needed for the transformation of the construction ecosystem, in order to identify and define the right components to design this potential future mission.
Help shape this potential future mission by filling in the survey available using this link.
