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.

Our university was an international contributor to an exciting research project focusing on the practices and teaching of public art. As part of its first Erasmus+ strategic partnership project in the past three years, MOME developed a teaching methodology together with the Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) in Finland, the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Ireland and the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA) in Estonia to incorporate public art into European art education.

The first Future Materials conference organised by MOME Innovation Centrer was a blast! Our campus hosted 2 keynote speeches and 5 panel discussions, presented 15 excellent speakers and welcomed over 200 participants to the conference. The diverse programme provided insights into the future of materials innovation, from nanofibres to circular textile design.
