New European Bauhaus
The Commission launched, at the same time as the Renovation wave strategy, the initiative on the New European Bauhaus. The initiative is both a network and a contact point at the crossroads between culture, social inclusion and innovation.
It is an ideal platform for the nature-based materials made by EPF members for construction, furniture, packaging and other end-uses.
Since its inception in 2021, EPF has engaged actively with New European Bauhaus.
- EPF is proud to be a co-founder of the wood4bauhaus Alliance, together with InnovaWood, Innorenew, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries (CEI-Bois), the European Federation of Building and Woodworkers (EFBWW) and the European Organisation of the Sawmill Industry (EOS) and with the support of the Horizon 2020 project consortia BASAJAUN and WoodCircus.
- EPF achieved to get the NEB partner status for the Alliance.
- We hosted an international conference to raise awareness for the transformative power of the Circular Economy, put a spotlight on the versatility of innovative wood-based products and building systems, and propose dedicated co-creation partnerships with the wood sector for the New European Bauhaus. This event welcomed more than 1000 participants and featured keynote presentations from Professor John Schellnhuber and Mrs Ruth Reichstein.
