How can we successfully decarbonise without deindustrialising? How can sustainable and circular development, planning, construction and operation become the standard, while Europe and its cities and infrastructures remain competitive? To answer these questions, we need communication and collaboration - a dialogue at eye level that brings together all disciplines, industry leaders and generations. 365 days a year.

That is neext. The new European Ecosystem for Transformation. A communication platform for new market perspectives that embodies the triad of innovative approaches under one roof: Industry, Real Estate and Infrastructure.

Be part of neext. Be part of tomorrow. Togehter, with us.


Europe must reinvent itself. Based on the innovative and creative power of society, business and industry, it is important to scrutinise the status quo and orientate it towards a competitive future.

We need to change the way we are changing - as a company, as a city and as a society. Age and size are being replaced by innovative power and speed.

Interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral and transnational dialog in new ecosystems is increasingly becoming the basis of future success. Vanity debates and monocultures belong to the past.

The vision is followed by the implementation. The goal is to move from talk to action - to truly sustainable and economically viable solutions for companies, cities and locations
