Design+Science Summer School takes place in person at various locations in Ljubljana with the Academy of Fine Arts and Design Ljubljana being the main venue.

The summer school approach is based on multidisciplinary group work.

It is open to participants from the field of design but also to all related practices such as architecture, art, computer sciences, social sciences, natural sciences, and others. Both for Master’s and PhD students, as well as young professionals.

Design+Science Summer School is not based on a fixed design methodology and thus will be open and flexible enough to allow groups to develop their own path during the school work.

The course costs 300 euros. It includes all the materials, excursions, coffee breaks, and lunch for the duration of the summer school. Participants are expected to organize their own travel and accommodation.
