The Research Institute of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (RI ALUO)
The Research Institute of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (RI ALUO) is the leading research organisation in the fields of art, design and cultural heritage. We study past, present and emerging practices in art, design, restoration and conservation. Underpinning our research are practices rooted in creativity, critical thinking and innovation that focus on the current socio-environmental and other global challenges and actively build on interdisciplinary collaboration. The academy’s research activities drive national research programmes and projects and visibly promote international cooperation. Presenting and publishing research results represents another of the Institute’s priorities.
