From 12-13 June, the Norwegian city of Trondheim will host the ARCH19 conference, ‘Building for better health’, a conference to share knowledge on research and innovation in architecture and health. The objective is to offer in-depth insights into the different research projects and experiences that are being carried out in architecture and urban design which contribute to improvements in people’s health and well-being.

Research and innovation in this field covers different disciplines such as medicine, nursing, gerontology, architecture and environmental psychology, among others. ARCH19 is an opportunity to learn first-hand about the R&D that has been carried out in these fields in relation to architecture and health and urban planning focused on health.

Based on this information, the aim is to promote collaborative R&D processes among the different groups involved: public bodies and institutions, architecture and urban planning studios and organisations linked to health and well-being, among others.
