European Healthcare Design 2022

13–15 June 2022
Call for Papers

We’re delighted to launch the Call for Papers for the 8th European Healthcare Design Congress 2022.

Plenary theme

The climate crisis is a health emergency. And global healthcare systems are uniquely placed to provide leadership across society, leveraging scientific, economic, social and political influence to accelerate a transformation towards a net-zero health sector and wider world.


Integrated Health Projects’ framework director Alan Kondys looks back at the winning developments from this year’s European Healthcare Design Awards 2021 and considers what lessons they may provide for adopting innovation in health infrastructure in the UK.

Climate-smart healthcare

This keynote session featured three leading experts discussing many of today’s big healthcare and design challenges, including an emphasis on environmentally sustainable healthcare and regenerative architecture.

New Hospital Programme

This keynote session was dedicated to UK health infrastructure and the New Hospital Programme – the UK Government’s commitment to build 40 new hospitals by 2030.

Pandemic response

This session introduced the opening keynote plenary of the COVID-19 Global Summit, a ‘conference within a conference’.

Cancer care

Maggie’s, in collaboration with SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange, are delighted to invite the healthcare and design community to join the live stream of the launch of the third edition of The Architecture of Hope in memory of Charles Jencks, as part of the celebration of Maggie’s 25th year.


As has become tradition, the European Healthcare Design Congress 2021 was brought to a close with a ceremony to celebrate the winners of the European Healthcare Design Awards 2021, supported by Integrated Health Projects (IHP) and category sponsors Hoare Lea and Medical Architecture.

Opening keynote plenary

Charles Darwin’s interpreted observation that it’s neither the most intellectual nor the strongest of the species that survives but the species that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself was the final message of Royal College of Physicians’ president Dr Andrew Goddard’s keynote talk during the opening plenary of the 7th European Healthcare Design Congress.
