Designing for Sustainable Health Care

Project Details


Collaborative design in design engineering in health care requires responses which are innovative in conception, sustainable in implementation and ongoing use, and conducive to well-being in their affects.

We focus on sustainable design engineering in the digitalization of healthcare products, services, and systems. Sustainability here considers social, environmental, financial dimensions of sustainability in healthcare across different knowledges.

This requires:
a diversity of multidisciplinary teams working on interdisciplinary research projects focusing on collaborative design in design engineering related to sustainability in health care.
local, national, and international research projects engaging patients, healthcare professionals and staff, NGOs, hospital and company partners in co-design and co-creation sustainable design engineering processes and practices.
application of research findings within the designing of product, service, and system, from conceptualization through to implementation.
