1-3 July 2020 | Designing Future Health

30 June: Doctoral Consortium

the future is now! Join us for the 6th european conference of Design4Health.

Established in 2011, Design4Health is a conference that brings together designers and creative practitioners with researchers, clinicians, policy makers and users to discuss, disseminate and test their approaches and methods. Together we explore creative approaches and perspectives to enhance understanding and experience, and improve efficiency of health and wellbeing services and products.  

This year, we particularly welcome persons, who consider the role of design in the future of health and care. We invite participation from researchers and practitioners across the areas of design, creative practice and health in order to develop new dialogues and offer different perspectives. The conference explores work, which considers how past trends and current research might inform future practice.
