Research and Innovation

AP University of Applied Sciences and Arts carries out both practice-oriented scientific research and research in the arts. We conduct research in an urban environment with the port of Antwerp close by. This lively environment offers a lot of inspiration for innovative, creative, ambitious and participative research. The diversity and international character specific to the city of Antwerp is also reflected in our practice-oriented scientific research and artistic research. Please feel free to contact us to explore collaboration opportunities!

Practice-oriented scientific research

Practice-oriented scientific research comprises all the research that takes place in the 6 departments and in AP's Innovation Lab. This research aligns with the areas of expertise of the departments and the Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab focuses on multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary themes bringing together a wide range of expertise, including expertise from research in the arts.

Research in the Arts

Research in the Arts comprises the research activities of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Conservatoire (together also called the Schools of Arts). The themes of research in the arts stem from the various artistic disciplines.
