Design has taken advantage of projects in universities. The role of project funding as a part of universities` finance is increasing all the time. But which projects are worth offunding?

The study explores efficacious of design projects in university. My interests concentrate on projects where actors are university, public financier and companies. Efficacious is difficult to recognize and measure especially in the area of culture and art. Anyway efficacious is remarkable part of design research because research of art and culture is societal intervention itself. At the moment evaluation of efficacious is diverse and narrow especially in the humanities.
