At the Faculty of Design we have two research groups:
- Culture of life (Dr. Jasna Hrovatin, Mojca Perše, Veronika Gruden mag., Domen Lo mag., Ariana Ferfile)
- Research Group for Textiles and Clothing (Dr. Celcar Damjan, Tamara Hajdu mag., Almina Durakovič mag., Manca Matičič Zver mag.)
The aim of both research groups is to achieve scientific excellence and international recognition. Group members are engaged in basic and applicative research work and development work for small and medium-sized enterprises. They cooperate with universities, research institutes and laboratories, at home and abroad. The results of their work are published in journals with citation index and professional journals in the field of activity. They can praise more patents and models.
