Call for Entries launched – submissions deadline 24 February

The Call for Entries for the European Healthcare Design Awards 2022 is now open.


A fixture highlight of the healthcare design events calendar, the Awards aim to have a significant influence on the creation of healthcare environments that promote health and wellness, embed quality improvement, and support the delivery of treatment and care in an accessible, sustainable and equitable way.


The entry process is open until 24 February 2022, with the shortlist due to be announced in April. The shortlisted projects will then be invited to present virtually to the judges and a live audience around the world in May, in a series of award category webinars.


The award winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony during the final session of the 8th European Healthcare Design 2022 Congress from 13-15 June. Next year’s Congress will be ‘in person’ and streamed online if safe to do so, or fully virtual if not. undefined - undefined
