Something of interest for e-SAFE’s readers: the new open call “CBE JU supporting activities for the New European Bauhaus Academy, a network for re-skilling and upskilling towards a sustainable construction ecosystem”. You might be interested to submit a proposal!
As a flagship initiative of the European Year of Skills, the New European Bauhaus (NEB) has launched the New European Bauhaus Academy, focusing on skills for sustainable construction. The initiative has now opened a new call for proposals to establish the NEB network. The primary objective is to facilitate the re-skilling and upskilling of the construction ecosystem, engaging younger generations and promoting the adoption of innovative circular and bio-based solutions. The NEB Academy serves as a vital instrument to transition from an extractive, mineral-based, and fossil hydrocarbon-fuelled construction economy to a regenerative bio-economy and circular system of material reuse.
- The total indicative budget available for the project selected is EUR 1 million.
To promote inter-regional exchange of skills and best practices, the NEB Academy will encourage the creation of NEB Academy Pioneer Hubs, create a Network of NEB Academy Hubs and develop the NEB Academy Collaborative Platform. Moreover it will help upskilling and re-skilling three million workers in the construction sector over the next five years. The call targets consortia of education and training providers specializing in sustainable construction to support the establishment of the NEB Academy network. This includes tasks such as designing its structure and rules of procedures, creating an online collaborative space, and identifying synergies with relevant networks and initiatives. The proposal focuses on enhancing vocational training opportunities, with a particular emphasis on bio-based solutions relevant to the construction industry. The NEB initiative aligns closely with the European Green Deal, the European Climate Law, and the 'Renovation Wave' strategy.
The call is now open, and it will be closed on 4 October 2023 at 17h00 Brussels local time.
