The Royal Institute of Art's commitment to research is driven by an ambition to highlight and promote a continual development of artistic achievements within the context of higher art education. It also aims to open up ways in which artistic knowledge can be articulated within its own field, and to examine its own conditions upon which creative work is made.
For artistic research projects to fully develop and mature, while generating knowledge through reflective practice, the Royal Institute of Art recognizes the importance of providing an extended length of time in an open-minded and supportive environment in which research can flourish and result in insights upon the being, function and development of art.
