Responsibility for the environment and the search for solutions to the problems of postindustrial society have inspired the recent development projects at the department. The aim of our research programmes is to tackle the problems of developing new materials and to introduce new flexible technology for ceramic and glass production. The research laboratory is focusing on deepening the understanding of design concepts and encouraging small and medium size industry to invest in design.

The combinined topic of our work is "Interaction in ceramics - art, design and research". The designer's point of view and mastery of the whole process of production, from materials to the end product, will give the department's projects a unique edge. The strength of the research team lies in its active international network and in its use of the latest information technology.
