In the heart of Vienna, the capital of the Danube monarchy, the predecessor institution of the current University of Applied Arts, the Imperial Royal Arts and Crafts School, was founded in 1867.It was closely affiliated with the Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry (today the MAK), the first Arts and Crafts museum on the European continent.


Some research institutions base their development of internal logics on expertise, drawing on exemplary forms of cutting-edge practices, while others have gone in the direction of designing options for the present while reflecting on the future. Both are rewarding approaches for both art and science. At the University of Applied Arts Vienna work is being done on productively merging both. In the past years an environment was created – an environment in which boundaries are seen as open and then also in the new fi elds which one reached, the ground on which one stands is not familiar, one has to go further beyond it, at a certain level that is.
