Research and Innovation play a prominent role at Luca School of Arts. LUCA Faculty of Arts leads on inspiring and facilitating research across a wide variety of disciplines- visual arts, audiovisual arts, performing arts, music and design. The researchers of LUCA Pro support industry and small and medium-sized organisations to develop innovative solutions to their real-world problems.

Drawing from practice and theory, our research cultivates the rich creative environments of our 5 campuses  (Brussels, Genk, Ghent and Leuven), enriching our students' practice and overall knowledge.
