Registration is open to all academic and non-academic interested partners.  

Aims of the workshop: 

  • Discuss how current societal trends (e.g. ageing, digitization and connectedness, increase in medical literacy and environmental awareness, and raising healthcare costs) are driving the need for novel healthcare solutions, namely regarding digital healthcare and medical devices 
  • Discuss the lack of professionals with cross-disciplinary knowledge on both design and healthcare, capable of optimizing the design, development and translation of novel healthcare solutions, in collaboration with other professionals (e.g. engineers, healthcare professionals) and stakeholders. 
  • Kickstart the development of Master and PhD programmes and curricula in Design in Healthcare and academic and non-academic consortia to carry out such programmes. 

This workshop is part of the Health Campus Degree Programmes Line. Within this activity, four on-going working groups foster collaboration between partners and support the development of unique Masters and PhDs covering the objectives of EIT Health.
