The NEB Digital Toolkit: How digitalisation is empowering the New European Bauhaus movement
The New European Bauhaus (NEB) movement and the digiNEB.eu project are at the forefront of digitalisation, demonstrating the transformative power of technology in promoting sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusivity in our living spaces. As a matter of fact, digital tools, like 3D modelling and virtual reality, enable architects and designers to craft living spaces that are more sustainable, inclusive, and visually appealing. Digitalisation also allows the creation of "digital twins" – virtual replicas of buildings and cities that can be used to optimise energy usage, reduce waste, and improve the overall sustainability of living spaces.
As part of the NEB ecosystem, the EU-funded project digiNEB.eu is establishing the NEB Digital Ecosystem. This digital ecosystem comprises the Digital Toolkit, the Observatory, and the eLearning platform.
The Digital Toolkit is a catalogue aiming to showcase over 200 digital solutions for the NEB ecosystem, providing a single access point connecting results from European research with all stakeholders involved in the New European Bauhaus. The solutions included in the Digital Toolkit range from digital twins and governance platforms to efficiency models for buildings and are applicable in several domains – from large urban centres to small rural communities.
While only in its first step, the NEB Digital Toolkit already comprises over 70 solutions developed by private actors and EU-funded projects and initiatives, now accessible to citizens and cities.
Would you like to search or look for a digital solution that facilitates the implementation of the NEB principles in local communities? Whether you are an architect, an engineer, or a citizen, the NEB Digital Toolkit has digital solutions that can help you implement the NEB principles in your living spaces.
