This biennial event, hosted in December 2017 by the Centre for Design Innovation, Faculty of Health, Arts and Design at Swinburne University of Technology, and Lab4Living at Sheffield Hallam University’s Art and Design Research Centre, will be held outside of Europe for the first time, in the summer season of Melbourne, Australia.
The Centre for Design Innovation investigates and validates the key factors that underpin the design of products, services, systems, spaces, and symbols to improve the chance of user uptake and impact
Lab4Living, who established the conference, is an interdisciplinary research initiative that develops products and environments, and proposes creative strategies for dignified, independent and fulfilled living for all.
In December 2017, the biennial event invites the world of health and design practitioners and researchers to come together in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia at the start of our summer season. It’s the best time of year to see Australia, explore Victoria, and exchange the innovations that develop when health and design combine ideas and research for common purpose.
Sophisticated and stimulating, Melbourne is renowned as a city of arts, culture and sustainability, being voted the world’s most liveable city for three years in a row. A fabulous destination not just for a conference but in its own right, whether it is food, art, music, fashion, sport and beyond, Melbourne has something to offer everyone.
