European Healthcare Design 2021: Programme launch webinar

By Laura Clarke 30 Apr 2021 0

The history books will declare 2020 a watershed year – when health systems, already strained in coping with chronic and lifestyle illnesses, were thrown into an ongoing, arduous battle against a new highly infectious virus.


Faced with the twin existential threats of global pandemics and a climate crisis, how do we pave the way for innovation in the way we design the physical, social and economic architecture of healthcare, alongside climate change mitigation and realising the disruptive value of science, digital technology and medicine?

In this webinar to launch the congress programme, Sir Muir Gray explores the potential of population health, personalised medicine and value-based healthcare to redesign our health systems for the future, Sonia Roschnik sets out the roadmap for the global healthcare sector to reduce its climate footprint, and Dame Laura Lee offers insights on how Maggie’s has contributed to changing the healthcare paradigm through design innovation.

This webinar was organised by Architects for Health and SALUS, and kindly supported by AECOM.
