Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design

Innovation Center

Design-driven research, development and innovation for impact
The Innovation Center conducts impactful, design-focused, interdisciplinary R&D projects, while also inspiring designers of the CEE region.

Research Hubs

The Innovation Center conducts research across five main fields, each represented by a separate hub.

Interdisciplinary research group focusing on tangible technology, dynamic surfaces, biomaterials, electronic textiles and soft robotics. They develop prototypes, research fabrication methodologies and create new materials.

Data collection is a daily practice in the 21st century but the stories behind the data are rarely unveiled. Data storytelling helps with interactive tools and narrative methods to show patterns that can help us make decisions.

Utilizing traditional ecological knowledge, state of the art technologies, and human ingenuity and intuition, we explore ways in which industry could do more with less, and serve not only the economy, but also ecologies.

In the Interaction and Immersion Hub we are looking at the design gaps of the Metaverse-like environments and we strive to create such prototypes that can have beneficial effect our mental health and also our daily life.

Developing and supporting practice based design research in order to seek opportunities for a more sustainable lifestyle and economy.

Együttműködési megállapodást írt alá a Moholy-Nagy Művészeti Egyetem (MOME) és a Nanushka, hogy elindítsák a Conscious Textile Group, azaz a Tudatos Textil Csoport munkáját. A MOME és a Nanushka összefogása a divatipar körforgásos gazdaságra való átállását segíti, célja a gyártás utáni textíliák körforgásos felhasználásának és innovatív módjainak kutatása, új, fenntartható anyagok fejlesztése. 

EJTECH included among artists of the Contextile 2022 Phase In, Phase Out by EJTECH (Judit Eszter Kárpáti and Esteban de la Torre, researchers of MOME Innovation Center) was selected for the prominent international Contextile 2022 (Contemporary Textile Art Biennial).

Between September 15-16 2022, MOME Innovation Center will bring together all key players along the material innovation process from research to market at the Future Materials Conference, with the aim to accelerate the development and adoption of next-gen materials through sharing expertise and building meaningful collaborations.


Inherent to matter, as it reshapes itself into exquisite intricate patterns of infinite scales, is the perpetual entanglement of becoming. Permutations of substance unfolding in waves of desiring dynamism.
