What can buildings contribute to the healing process and where do we stand on this issue?

You are cordially invited to the Healing Architecture Symposium, where Danish and German experts will meet to present and discuss their ideas and experiences on existing and future hospital projects.

We look forward to an exchange on different approaches, new findings, challenges and possible solutions.

Together with the Danish Embassy, EY brings stakeholders who deal with hospital buildings from different perspectives into a joint exchange.

We will also be presenting the EY hospital study, which focuses on the question “What makes hospitals into healthcare buildings?”.

Last but not least, the Danish Embassy will be presenting its initiatives for exchange between Denmark and Germany in the healthcare sector.
