We are very happy to invite you to our next SHS Public on March 15, 2022 at 17:00 at Launchlabs in Basel on the fascinating topic "Design in Health Innovation".


Join us in learning how through design, we can provoke every aspect of health to work better, adding value to the future of health.  And how the Swiss health ecosystem is using creative methods to deeply understand the needs of patients, relatives and providers, generating fresh systemic approaches whilst keeping up with a fast pace of progress. We hope this special issue can serve to learn, connect and inspire.
