Research at Konstfack

The research at Konstfack is characterised by the interaction of artistic and practical standpoints with scientific perspectives. An overarching aim is that Konstfack's research should contribute to a sustainable future.

At Konstfack research is conducted within the areas of design, arts, crafts, visual communication and arts education. The research aims to radically rethink the relationship individual-community-environment, and ultimately to contribute to a more sustainable society. The research should bring new perspectives and suggest sustainable solutions for the future.

Research environment
In a unique way, Konstfack combines highly specialized workshops with a lively intellectual environment. The environment presents unique conditions for research, and the research at Konstfack combines the practices of doing and creating with scientific perspectives.

Externally funded research
Research is conducted mainly through externally funded research projects, many times in collaboration with other universities or private companies. The projects are organised in interdisciplinary research areas, that are linked to Konstfack's main subjects.

PhD programme
The PhD students are important to Konstfack's research environment. Some of the PhD students are in the PhD programme run jointly by Konstfack and KTH, "Art, Technology and Design", some are conducting their studies independently of this programme.
