Healthcare systems all over the world are exposed to huge challenges – from local to global level. There are higher expectations on healthcare provision from users and staff, together with technological opportunities combined with new needs. These factors push towards a shift from hospital-based units towards a situation where provision of health promotion and healthcare activities is needed in patients/peoples’ everyday places.

General information

This course will address healthcare system challenges, presented and explained by actors central within the Swedish healthcare system. The questions addressed in the course are not possible to solve properly within a single field of knowledge, these challenges need a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, the teachers and stakeholders in the course include a multitude of competences in a unique setting, headed by the collaborative platform CHI with competence about healthcare organisation, together with Architecture and Civil Engineering and Biomedical Engineering/Digital Health expertise from the department of Electrical Engineering.

The result of this course is expected to concern and encompass several organizational, spatial and technologically oriented solutions and innovations. Participation can serve as source of inspiration for future job opportunities for students but can also contribute to new aspects on the provision of healthcare. This course offers you the possibility to experience how you will be able to tackle crucial societal challenges together with our professionals in a team.


We welcome students from all programmes and aim at 30 students (minimum 10) in balanced project groups with a mix of competences and backgrounds. We will organize the students in groups based on these factors. If the interest is high, there will be a selection of students based on their competence, interests, and motivation.
