Research at Central Saint Martins

Central Saint Martins has an established and thriving research community. Our staff are curious and innovative and their research ranges from practice driven investigation to theoretical study.

The results of our research  take many forms including artefacts, designs, patents, catalogues, exhibitions, digital resources of various kinds, as well as published work such as books, journal articles and commissioned reports.

Much of our work crosses disciplinary boundaries and is carried out in collaboration with industry, commerce, museums and galleries, governmental organisations and other academic institutions.
