Research experience
Dérive Berlin Spring School is organized by Avans University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with Belius Foundation (Berlin) and the Center of Applied Research for Art, Design & Technology (Caradt). The program offers students a guided learning and research experience within an environment of cutting-edge projects on the crosslines of art, design and technology. The participants immerse themselves for a week in the creative urban space of the German capital. They increase their research skills and capabilities and gain momentum for their own creative work.
