Sustainable Industry Hub

Research Hubs
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.
Earth is quickly running out of easily accessible resources, only a fraction of which is being reused instead of going to waste in a landfill or ending up polluting our environment. Industries are facing material shortages, supply chain issues, and strict environmental regulations.
Does it have to be this way? People made things before the industrial revolution, and we’ve forgotten just as much as we’ve learned since it began. It’s time to find better ways to design, build, and manufacture.

We work to find solutions to the challenges of protecting freshwater reedbeds. Reedbeds are natural habitats of great importance to aquatic life. However, the destruction and fragmentation of reedbeds has serious consequences for the ecosystem as a whole.

Mapping what possibilities are available to help reduce plastic pollution using mycelium.

Within the framework of an R&D course, students re-design an existing business so that it can still exist in the significantly transformed Hungary of 2050.

Research Hubs

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.

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.
