The official shortlist for the European Healthcare Design 2021 Awards has been announced, and this year, for the first time, we’re excited to announce live webinar presentations and judging of all the shortlisted categories, taking place between 18 and 24 May.
We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Preliminary Programme for the 7th European Healthcare Design 2021 Congress & Exhibition.
Our Early Bird ticket deadline is 14 May, so book your place, save money and look forward to an incredible line-up of speakers, workshops and the EHD2021 Awards, as well as virtual networking with your peers from around the world.
To mark the launch of this year’s programme, we hosted a free webinar focusing on the plenary theme of this year’s congress: ‘Creative destruction: Design innovation in the face of existential threats’.
In a tumultuous year when the resilience of healthcare globally has been tested to the limit by the pandemic, the pressure to adopt a climate-smart development path for designing, building, operating and investing in health systems and infrastructure has also increased exponentially.
The 6th European Healthcare Design Congress – the first-ever delivered virtually, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and necessary restrictions on social gatherings – kicked off with a hard-hitting opening plenary looking at designing for population and planetary health within the context of climate change and COVID-19.
