Keynote panel – Public-private partnership

Delivered through private philanthropy, in a public-private partnership underpinned by a common vision shared with architects and the Greek Government, three new state-of-the-art public hospitals are being built in different parts of Greece, to offer equitable and high-quality medical care for all.

Keynote panel – AI in healthcare

As global health systems struggle to cope with a tsunami of threats and challenges – from ageing populations and rising levels of chronic disease, to underfunded physical infrastructure and a workforce crisis – does artificial intelligence herald a new utopian era of personalised health, empowered patients, and exciting new therapies, or a dehumanised technological dystopia?


In this keynote talk, Jennifer Dixon explores the barriers and opportunities faced by our healthcare systems today and into the future. Using the UK as a case example, she addresses the question of how best to chart an intelligent path into the future by identifying the issues and conditions for progress that are applicable to many other countries.


Healthcare systems have been making strides in improving patient safety, as demonstrated by the reduction of healthcare–associated infections and other complications of care. But the Covid-19 pandemic degraded patient safety and staff wellness so quickly and severely, it suggested that our healthcare systems lack a sufficient resilient safety culture and infrastructure.


Living in the modern world, it can be hard to ‘see’ food. We all eat every day, yet few of us know where our food comes from.

Keynote – innovation in healthcare

While there are those who question whether the growing use of technology and artificial intelligence (AI) might erode the human touch in healthcare, one surgeon believes that it could, in fact, make us more human.


As is customary, the presentation ceremony for the European Healthcare Design Awards 2024 provided a fitting finale to the European Healthcare Design Congress (EHD).

Keynote – Rehabilitation care

In the last few years, the world has become a more dangerous place, with major conflicts in both the Middle East and Ukraine. But while the human body is fragile, we possess an indefatigable spirit when faced with adversity.
