Redefining practice-based research in Europe


RMIT’s game-changing PhD program that’s shifting the concept of industry embedded research in Europe recently returned to Barcelona for its biannual Practice Research Symposium Europe (PRS Europe).

After two years of going online, RMIT’s School of Architecture and Urban Design, School of Design and School of Fashion and Textiles teamed up with BAU – College of Arts & Design Barcelona to deliver its three-day symposium of more than 26 PhD candidates completing research in established and newly emerging areas of design and the creative arts.

The event saw the continued participation of candidates and staff from the University of Westminster, Queens University Belfast and Estonian Academy of Arts.

Redefining conventional PhD formats, RMIT’s program sees researchers delve into a study of their own practice, often within their own design studio or agency.
