About us

The Design-Organization-Media (DOM) Research Lab is an internationally recognized research and consulting center for sensing, creating, and launching desired futures in organizations.

We help students, researchers and decision makers in business and society to understand and define the framework for innovation and change, to design and communicate compelling visions, and to build the renewal capabilities, systems, and structures that are right for organizations.

We do this from a design and communications perspective and with a strategic focus. We facilitate knowledge through research, teaching and consulting.

Embedded in a diverse network
DOM is located at the University of Arts and Design in Linz and run in close collaboration with the Ars Electronica Center Linz. The center is lead as an autonomous research unit and managed by the idea of an entrepreneurial organization. Partly self-financed through services and external funding DOM is helping the university to reach higher levels of financial independence.

As an integrated organization of the university, the DOM Research Lab is also closely connected to the Ars Electronica Center, both in terms of its overall concept and its personnel.

For more than a decade, DOM has built up connections to a worldwide network of expert to enable knowledge exchange on an international level as well as to allow the local economy to benefit from global know-how and experience.

Services offered by DOM
