The Libre Graphics Research Unit is a traveling lab where new ideas for creative tools are developed. The Research Unit is an initiative of four European media-labs actively engaged in Free/Libre and Open Source Software and Free Culture. This cross-disciplinary project involves artists, designers and programmers and is developed in dialogue with the Libre Graphics community.

The Libre Graphics Research Unit works around four interconnected threads:

Around each thread we organise Research meetings and commissions. We host workshops, a physical workstation and a conference. The LGRU Reader brings all four threads together.
