Conferences so far have been held in Sheffield in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2018, and Melbourne, Australia in 2017; we are delighted that next year’s conference will take participants to the beautiful city of Amsterdam.

The Lab4Living conference team from Sheffield Hallam, Paul Chamberlain, Claire Craig and Kirsty Christer, travelled to Amsterdam in March 2019 to discuss plans, venues and themes with our partners at WAAG-CARE and the University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam. Sabine Wildevuur has been a member of the conference review panel since 2015. Paul Chamberlain was pleased to return to the WAAG, where his HOSPITAbLe exhibition took place in 2017.

We look forward to sharing our ideas and plans with the Design4Health community.
