The New European Bauhaus (NEB) Prizes recognise projects and concepts that steer the transformation of European society, making it more sustainable, inclusive, and beautiful. In the 2023 edition, the competition received over 1400 applications from all EU Member-States and the Western Balkans.
The 2024 edition of the New European Bauhaus Prizes is around the corner, and DG REGIO seeks expressions of interest from external experts to assess the applications submitted to the competition.
This call aims to select experts able to assess the applications from the angle of the values and working principles of the New European Bauhaus (NEB):
1. Sustainability (understood as environmental sustainability, including climate issues, circularity, biodiversity, etc.);
2. Aesthetics and quality of experience (design, arts, culture, architecture, etc.);
3. Inclusiveness (equal opportunities, accessibility, affordability).
The call is open to persons with educational and/or professional background in at least one of the NEB values mentioned above, but priority will be given to those who have relevant education and/or experience in at least two of the NEB values or a combination of one NEB value and one NEB working principle.
Among those who express interest in the call, the European Commission will select members of the jury assessing the finalists’ applications and recommending the winners to the Commission’s Evaluation Committee. The work of the jury is planned to take place between 19 February and 3 March 2024. The role of a jury member will not be linked with the role of the expert assessing individual applications. See the details in the ‘Call for experts specifications’.
Deadline for application: 30 September 2023
