1st Bauhaus of the Seas Conference – NEB Co-Design Event


The 1st Bauhaus of the Seas conference will take place on 20th May 2021, from 9:00 to 18:00, in Lisbon @MAAT. This conference, held under the New European Bauhaus (NEB) Initiative, aims at improving the quality of life of European citizens and promoting a more sustainable society.

The ”Bauhaus of the Seas” was the first thematic network proposed in the context of the co-creation phase of the New European Bauhaus and aims to promote renewed ethical and aesthetic regenerative development from a widely diverse range of dimensions of our continued relationship with the sea. This network will involve fostering a school of interdisciplinary experimentation and entrepreneurship, bound to shape a generation of designers, architects, engineers, artists, managers, and scientists around sustainable design solutions for coastal regions and the sea. Why the Seas and the Oceans?


Participants in this conference: Graça Fonseca (Portuguese Minister of Culture), Manuel Heitor (Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education), Cristina Messa (Italian Minister of University and Research), Märta Stenivi (Swedish Minister for Gender Equality and Housing), Fernando Medina (Mayor of Lisbon / Lisbon as a Lighthouse City of the NEB), Mariya Gabriel (EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education, and Youth) and Elisa Ferreira (EU Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms), among many other experts.

Técnico is a partner institution. Professor Nuno Jardim Nunes coordinates the Técnico working group.
