Engineering in Action Awards

“Engineering in Action” requirements and regulations

The 38th Hospital Engineering Congress and the AEIH Association launch the “Engineering in Action” Awards with the aim of recognizing, on the one hand, the work of teams of engineers, architects and / or technicians that have implemented sanitary resources to respond to the pandemic, and on the other, the work of engineering teams in reducing the primary energy consumption in health centers.

Through this call, it is intended to recognize the work of those teams of professionals who have enabled new positions, areas or resources for COVID patients or who have developed projects and programs to reduce energy consumption in their day-to-day activities. Therefore, two categories of Engineering in Action Awards are called, in addition to submit abstracts and their awards.

In this category, teams of engineers, architects and / or technicians who have implemented sanitary resources to respond to the pandemic are awarded.

The scope of the healthcare facility will be assessed in relation to the population catered in terms of the number of beds (with O2 supply), or additional ICU beds supplied, the number of posts for medical care or hospitalization set or additionally built (with supply of medical gases) and/or the number of assisted ventilation equipment or additional respirators available for patient care in the health center.
