DESIGN & HEALTH - WORLD CONGRESS
DESIGN & HEALTH - WORLD CONGRESS
EXPLORATION OF THE GLOBAL APPLICATION OF SALUTOGENIC PERSPECTIVES ON EUROPEAN HEALTHCARE DESIGN.
April 14 - 18 2020  ·  Universiteit Gent

The International Academy for Design and Health (IADH) organising committee invite you to attend the 13th Design & Health World Congress & Exhibition in partnership with the Belgian government, and world-renowned academic institutions and healthcare industries.

Congress Themes

Our congress theme is based on the philosophy that ‘less is more’ – that being surrounded by the basics just for the sake of functionality is not only more than enough, but that if we apply this to design in health, it could also result in better health outcomes & wellness.
