Since 2017, EINA has been promoting a line of research in design and art within the UAB Doctoral Programme in Philosophy. Through the Master's Degree in Research in Art and Design (MURAD), EINA offers the possibility of continuing with studies by taking part in this doctoral programme, which gives access to the title of Doctor from the UAB.

Doctoral students can count on the joint supervision of an EINA teacher and a lecturer from various degree courses at the UAB, and they can take part in various seminars on subjects in design, philosophy, aesthetics and theory of art promoted by EINA or the Department of Philosophy and Theory of Arts at the UAB.

Especially designed to provide support to monitoring doctoral theses under way, the seminar GEARAD - Aesthetics Applied to Art and Design Research Group acts as a methodological, procedural and contents-based reading and discussion group. Besides the monthly work sessions, members are encouraged to take part in research activities such as publications, conferences, seminars, etc. to train themselves in developing the usual academic formats.

With the line of research in design and art, within the Doctoral Programme in Philosophy at the UAB, EINA has been the first university centre of Design and Art in Spain to develop the entire educational continuum from the Degree to the Doctorate., making it a pioneer in the country with an academic pedigree in line with global European educational centres devoted to research in art and design.
