Gothenburg 2018

EuHPN’s 2018 workshop took place in Gothenburg, Sweden, with generous support from our member organisations White Arkitekter and Chalmer’s University of Technology’s Centre for Healthcare Architecture.  Around a dozen European countries were represented by 90 speakers and participants, and in addition to a series of top class presentations on our theme of Research and Evaluation for Care Closer to Home the attendees were able to visit the Carlanderska Hospital and the Nötkarnan bergsjön primary care centre – both award winning examples of design for health facilities.

The presentations from the workshop are now being uploaded to the table below.  Please check here for updates.
