Industry Partnerships

RISD and its corporate, government, foundation and nonprofit partners have discovered the extraordinary benefits of collaborative research projects with RISD students and faculty – on campus and around the world. These partnerships challenge artists and designers to focus their minds and hands on coming up with new ideas and fresh approaches to a wide array of business, civic and societal needs.
