I Innovate Workshop
Descripció del projecte
We at the Vall d'Hebron Campus support the promotion of projects that are clearly committed to innovation at all levels. It is in this environment, full of constant changes and challenges, that we aim to examine our own talent to find ideas for improving the everyday issues of our professionals and patients. Hence our creation of a space at the annual I Innovate Workshop for gathering together all the innovative projects that the Campus’s professionals have for helping them with the transformation towards a more innovative campus: from creating mobile apps to high-complexity business ideas and even health-care improvements for enhancing the work environment.
It is through our annual I Innovate Workshop that we aim to get our professionals to present their innovative ideas and all our workers to choose a winning idea. The whole workforce, whatever the professional sector, can take part in this and it is the professionals themselves from the Campus who will choose from all the projects proposed and vote for the best from among the four finalists. In addition, the four finalist proposals will be funded and implemented in the Campus.
The innovation projects are divided up into the following categories:
- Economic and energy sustainability
- Patient satisfaction
- Safety of patients and professionals
- Professional satisfaction
The first I Innovate workshop was held in 2018. You can consult full information on the I Innovate workshops at www.vallhebron.com/joinnovo.
I innovate. And you, what's your innovation?

At Vall d’Hebron we are committed to humanising care, placing children and their families at the core. We offer integrated care, treating the physical aspects of the illness alongside the psychological and social repercussions. This is why our younger patients have access to toys, play areas and a host of activities that promote wellbeing.
There are more than 3,000 nurses and nursing assistants at Hospital Vall d’Hebron. The work they do in the centre is vital and they are leaders both in nursing care and research. Getting to this point was a long process, as Mariona Creus, former nursing director, and Maria Àngels Barba, the current director, recall.
The Neonatology Department’s Sibling Project is a workshop for the siblings of new-born babies admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in the Vall d’Hebron Maternity and Children's Hospital. Through simulated games and situations, the project prepares them to get used to seeing their younger siblings in a hospital medical setting.
The winning proposal for the transformation of the Vall d’Hebron Campus is the project directed by Jordi Badia, Antoni Ubach and Miquel Espinet. The project presented by the architects includes a new research building for the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, with an expandable area of 5,000 m2 and a budget of €15 million funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
