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.

Various social problems that need to be addressed have come to play an increasingly prominent role in everyday life, begging the question how to go about solving them.

Project Change Agent has launched, involving art and design universities from six countries working together under the leadership of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) and with the European NGO sector to seek long-term solutions in the field of extreme poverty, gender equality and the social mobility of children.

Malu Lücking has recently joined the Conscious Textile Group, the joint initiative of MOME Innovation Center and Nanushka.
