Exploring the Field of Interaction in Architectural Design Education is an Erasmus+ research program conducted by the TOBB University, and partners Universidade Lusofona, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, TU Eindhoven, the University of Zagreb Faculty of Architecture, and the EAAE.

The project explores the in-between activities bridging education and the profession, focusing on the final stages of architectural education before entering practice: the final design studio and internships. In its first phase, it maps in detail the formats, goals and procedures of the final graduation thesis qualifying the student in attaining a degree, as well as mapping the role of internships in European curricula as well as conditions of entering practice and attaining qualifications.

Due to its in-depth analysis of outcomes mirrored in knowledge and skills tested through the final design studio, as well as experiences of practice and informal learning during study, it produces a qualitative view of learning outcomes and actual skills attained. Following this, the projects aims to innovate the paths followed within in-between mediation activities occurring in these fields of interactions (methods, processes, and execution).
