The research week is an opportunity offered for researchers in the institutional environment of the Angewandte to present research projects and activities into a context of dialogue and to foster further exchange. Through this stage for research we would like to increase the visibility of your work and support the debate on research activities at the university.

Colleagues with their research projects and doctorate students share their research experience and (preliminary) outcomes. 13 colleagues from research projects, scientific doctoral programmes and the artistic research PhD programme situated at the University of Applied Arts Vienna will take part.

The research projects will be presented and discussed in the garden of the Prateratelier – also due to covid – of the Zentrum Fokus Forschung. After the specific project presentations, we invite to a discussion round in the studio of the Prateratelier (limited number of persons), in which the persons of the previously held presentations as well as the respondents take part.

You are also cordially invited to attend the Welcome & Intro on Wednesday evening for the presentations of the new candidates of the Artistic Research PhD programme.

We kindly ask you to give us a short feedback about your possible participation on the respective days in order to plan the seating arrangements according to the required distance.
