Editorial

Ingénieurs Hospitaliers de France is greatly honoured to have been chosen to organise the 10th European Conference on Healthcare Engineering. The association hopes to offer the best possible welcome to our European colleagues and arrange an outstanding event that promises to mark a new milestone in the development of European healthcare engineering.

This biennial conference was founded by the European arm of the International Federation of Healthcare Engineering (IFHE EU). We previously had the pleasure of hosting the event back in 2011, and this 10th edition will take place in Paris in conjunction with the 63rd IHF Study and Training Days (IHF STD) at the Palais des Congrès of Paris from 14 to 16 June 2023.

Difficult events in Europe (COVID-19 pandemic, climate, war in Ukraine, universal access to healthcare, etc.) are further complicating the major challenges currently facing healthcare engineering: sustainable development and reducing carbon emissions, life cycles and overall cost, the development of digital and artificial intelligence, involving users in the design of healthcare spaces. They are now influencing the more traditional themes of managing maintenance and operation and the design of the healthcare built environment from prevention through to end of life support.

All of these critical issues will be discussed by leading speakers from IFHE EU member countries during two plenary sessions and eight themed workshops. They will be featured in articles published in the Book of the proceedings, a printed brochure given to all participants on their arrival at the conference, which will remain a reference publication.

A trade fair including suppliers, industry figures, designers, consultants, etc. and specific forums will allow visitors to discover innovations and enjoy discussion and debate with other professionals.

Finally, there will be multiple spaces and opportunities for friendly interaction during this event, as a key objective of this European conference is for figures from the European healthcare engineering sector to share and discuss topics, as well as network with their European colleagues.

Ingénieurs Hospitaliers de France is counting on you, European healthcare engineering professionals, to make this conference a benchmark European platform for debate and discussion. We look forward to meeting you in Paris, which - like other European capitals - will also be able to showcase its diverse cultural, artistic and architectural heritage.

Bruno CAZABAT, president IHF
Jacques ROOS, vice-president IHF, vice-president IFHE EU
