NHIP Global: Campus of the Future
Monday October 4, 2021
What happens when you bring three Academic Health Science Centres from different parts of the globe together for a moment in time to consider common learnings for the Campus of the Future?
Three interesting stories of campus developments at different stages of evolution were shared at our recent event, all having a common ambition for patient and population benefit, genuine citizen and industrial engagement and a desire to contribute to reducing inequalities. All these experiences, 18 months into a global pandemic, challenge the norms on how we plan and work in the future.
In this video, Professor David Burn (Director of Newcastle Health Innovation Partners) provides an inspiring and aspirant ambition to create a campus for ageing in the West End of Newcastle, Professor Vlado Perkovic, (Dean of Medicine at UNSW Sydney) highlights how the multibillion Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct was created through a Health Translational Hub, and Professor Anantha Shekhar, (Senior Vice Chancellor at the University of Pittsburgh) shares his thinking to build transformative life sciences from discovery through the biotech ecosystem.
Several common features struck during the presentations, that include:
- How future campuses need to function as living laboratories that focus on the healthy as well as the unhealthy.
- How centres develop as economic powerhouses to cultivate world leading research and innovation, attracting industry, in a natural environmental setting.
- To recognise the importance from physical connectivity to a world beyond real estate to how people work.
Listen to these experiences in the recording from our event below.
