The International Union of Architects (UIA) “Public Health Group” annual seminar

3 Keynotes gathering the greatest international experts :
1. The evolution of French University Hospitals – Tuesday 29 may – 1:15 pm – 1:45 pm
Advances in modern medicine and technological innovations are accompanied by a continuing
challenge to hospital practices and organizations.
60 years after their creation, the University Hospital Centers (CHU) remain the flagship of the French public health system. Through their reflections and their commitments on major projects, the French university hospitals are positioning themselves as national and international references in all the leading fields.
Given the major technological and human developments, often impossible to anticipate, how to design each new construction and modernization to provide the hospital with a highly efficient and scalable tool worthy of the 21st century?
2. International meetings of healthcare design on the Village of Architects – Wednesday 30 may – 9:15 am – 10:00 am
Author : David Entibi, Chief editor Architecture Hospitalière Magazines & Gérard Huet, Architect.
The dynamic that has taken root in the French and international networks around the architectural design dedicated to healthcare favors today more than ever the exchange and the sharing of experience between all the professionals who think and design our future healthcare facilities. The organization of the UIA- Public Health Group seminar is an exceptional opportunity to mark the meeting between all these designers from around the world.
After the presentation of the European architect’s village to the international guests and the announcement of the creation of the “French Speaking Union Architects for Health”, all the members of the UIA Public Health Group and the Europeans architects will exchange together during a friendly breakfast
3. Paris, London, Berlin – Thursday 31 may – 9:15 am – 10:00 am
Hospitals may be out of date on the day of their inauguration. The time required from design to delivery of buildings is increasingly out of sync with the pace of innovation.
How to reconcile the hospital architecture with the time of technological, medical and organizational innovations?
For 5 years now, Paris Healthcare Week has welcomed this village, becoming a major meeting place for hospital architecture stakeholders.
The Architects Village is gathering thirty national and international agencies and offices, on a dedicated area in the heart of the show and oriented to the reflections on the evolution of French and European hospital and medico-social.
Nearly 20 conferences, debates and round tables based on themes at the heart of health professionals’ concerns. Developed for 3 days, and moderated by specialized professional journalists, the program is organized as part of a shared agenda.
