The Architects’ Council of Europe is regularly involved in EU-funded projects. This section gives a brief description of each of the projects in which the ACE is currently and has been involved in recent years.
The project CONNECTARCH (May 2017 - April 2021) aims to reinforce the sector’s capacity and help the profession to face current and forthcoming challenges: cross-border and trans-national mobility, increased competition from outside the EU, adaptation to digital technologies, acquisition of new skills and competences.
The project is co-funded by Creative Europe, the EU Commission’s financing instrument that supports Europe’s cultural and creative sectors. The European Networks sub-programme is designed to help the cultural and creative sectors to operate transnationally and to strengthen their competiveness, notably by providing professionals with specific skills and experience, to enable them to expand their careers in Europe and beyond. CONNECTARCH enables ACE to run many varied activities to strengthen the capacities and visibility of the profession at EU level and beyond, for the benefit of its Member Organisations, and ultimately all European architects. With this project, ACE is tackling the challenges of today and invest in the future
The ACE’s role is generally one of giving expertise to the partners in the project and disseminating the results through its extensive network of Members and international contacts. Through the work in these projects, ACE seeks to promote the architects’ role in energy efficient construction and urban regeneration, to influence cutting edge research and make it more applicable for European architects and to underpin its policy positions.
