NEB ambition

The ultimate ambition of the New European Bauhaus is to achieve transformation. To do this, the NEB Compass has identified specific levels of ambition that outline the desired outcomes for each of the NEB values.

Action areas

These areas refer to the five key domains of intervention that CrAFt's New European Bauhaus Impact Model considers essential for guiding and evaluating complex urban initiatives.

Participation level

The participation level refers to the degree or extent to which individuals or groups are actively involved or engaged in a particular activity, project, or process. It assesses the depth of their involvement, contributions, and commitment, ranging from minimal or passive participation to active and dedicated participation.

NEB values

The New European Bauhaus (NEB) aims to promote the values of sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusion in the design and transformation of urban spaces. It emphasises the integration of environmental, social, and economic considerations to create harmonious and innovative living environments.

Implementation Stage

According to the Smart City Guidance Package, there are seven stages to plan and implement smart city projects. These stages propose a logical and coherent roadmap for city initiatives involving many stakeholders.


Every partner university initiates one or multiple curriculum-related interdisciplinary activities at their university (called Steam Teams) as part of their BA or MA curriculum. 

In many cases, these activities already exist, however, they have not been connected nor reflected upon in a connected context. CrAFt offers this opportunity by bringing these activities into the CrAFt network. As STEAM Teamwork is already integral to the curriculum of partner universities, the partner universities have extensive knowledge, programmes, and experience in place to implement CrAFt objectives in their curricula. Doing this in multiple European cities and becoming part of the CrAFt platform enhances the exchange of interdisciplinary work models among professors and students.

STEAM Teams projects

STEAM Teams are curriculum-integrated activities, set up as some kind of learning module or course at the universities, therefore the students’ involvement is limited to the timeframe during which that module/course is scheduled. The students receive academic credit by gaining ECTS for their work.
