Design & Health Europe 2010 is an international symposium, that took place from 7-8 October at the University Hospital Brussels in Belgium.

As Europe struggles to address a trio of economic challenges in the shape of debt, demographic decline and lower growth after many years of capital investment in healthcare infrastructure, there has never been a better time for a new paradigm in understanding how to improve the health status of Europeans.

In recognition that health and wellbeing are the foundation for a productive society, economic development and social and political harmony, Design & Health Europe 2010 explored global health perspectives on the planning, procurement, finance, design, construction and operation of health facilities within the local context of infrastructure development in the region.

The symposium discussed how new approaches to health planning and design can provide Europe with a more cost-effective context for enhancing human health, wellbeing and quality of life.

Adopting a holistic approach that recognises the modern day challenges of health delivery, the symposium appeal to an interdisciplinary mix of researchers and practitioners from government, academia, health and social care providers, and private industry, including:
