Healthcare in Shape: A transdisciplinary symposium on designing for health


NEXT, Delft

9:00 - 18:00

Designers and healthcare providers have one common goal: to keep individuals, communities and societies in shape both addressing the issues of health on a continuum from being healthy to severely ill.

The Healthcare in Shape symposium welcomes all professionals, researchers, and students in the healthcare domain who have the interest, affinity, and expertise in rethinking, designing, implementing and assessing novel solutions and policies for a healthcare system in shape - evidence-based, future proof, high quality, sustainable and inclusive.
