13th World Congress for Design & Health
April 14, 2020 - April 18, 2020
We are putting the final touches on the planning of the 13th World Congress of Design & Health. Stay tuned to this page over the coming weeks and months for more news and announcements!
The International Academy for Design and Health (IADH) will be organising the 13th Design & Health World Congress & Exhibition in partnership with the Belgian government, and with the collaboration of world-renowned academic institutions and healthcare industries.
Our congress theme is based on the philosophy that ‘less is more’ – that being surrounded by the basics just for the sake of functionality is not only more than enough, but that if we apply this to design in health, it could also result in better health outcomes & wellness.
Preliminary Congress Structure
This year’s congress will have a refined structure to maximise interest, attendance and engagement.
Congress Venue, Ghent Belgium
Belgium is at the heart of Europe, tucked away between The Netherlands, Germany, Luxemburg and France. It is a vibrant region and an economic hub in the middle of one of the world’s highest concentrations of people and industries.
