AIL - The Angewandte Innovation Laboratory
The Angewandte Innovation Laboratory, AIL, founded in autumn 2014 is an initiative of the University of Applied Arts Vienna. For the first time in Austria Art and Artistic Research is seen as the driving force of Innovation. Together with partners from the fields of business, science, arts and research and the varying positions, sources and resources of the University of Applied Arts Vienna we offer space and time for exchange, networking, experiments of thoughts and the opportunity to get inspired by new perspectives.
Within specific event formats, we discuss interdisciplinary and socially relevant themes, with the goal of creating ideas, concepts and models. New opportunities and solutions are encouraged to address current issues.
The AIL also hosts the Venedig Biennale Archive Austria with its research terminal and reference library. The Biennale Archive provides extensive digital documentation and photographic
material for artistic and scientific research. For using the Archive, please make an appointment.
