Artistic development work covers a broad spectrum at the Royal Institute of Art as the school’s programmes and courses include practical and theoretical studies within fine art, architecture and conservation architecture.

Those eligible to apply for 1-year or 2-year KU-funding at the Royal Institute of Art are: employed teachers, enrolled master students, students at Mejan Arc, doctoral candidates, project students, and those guest students and special students who study at the advanced level. External co-applicants are allowed. The application is done at the end of the year.

The research projects should be clearly formulated and be of interest to the Royal Institute of Art in respect of artistic research perspectives. The projects should offer new knowledge and insights within the artistic field and also be possible to complete within the specified time period.

The KU-projects contribute to the educational programmes at the school through exhibitions, workshops, performances, lectures and seminars.

The selection of the KU-projects is made through an initial discussion in the school’s Research Committee which presents its proposed list to the Education and Research Board where the final decision is made.
