The NET-ARCH programme is co-funded by Creative Europe, the EU Commission’s financing instrument that supports Europe’s cultural and creative sectors.
In 2021, ACE had developed a successful bid for a new programme of funded activity designed to:
- develop participation in culture (audience development) ;
- build capacity to be active at international level;
- advocate for sustainable / environmentally - friendly practices;
- promote new technologies to enhance competitiveness;
- develop initiatives to optimise networking, upskilling, advocacy, data collection / dissemination.
The bid was approved in December and outputs aligned to the ACE Strategy.
This programme 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 NET-ARCH, ACE is tackling the challenges of today and invest in the future.
Besides the Creative Europe programme, the Architects’ Council of Europe is regularly involved in others EU-funded projects. Discover a brief description of each of the projects in which the ACE is currently involved.
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.
All projects have been funded by the EC under the following frameworks: FP7, H2020, Erasmus+, Creative Europe.
