Founded in 1881 as the original ‘red brick’, the University of Liverpool is one of the UK’s leading research-intensive higher education institutions.
The Civic Data Cooperative, hosted by the Institute of Population Heath, has been established to mobilise civic data sets across the region making our residents’ data to work harder for them in shaping better care while fuelling innovations of international importance.
Our Mission is to enable positive change in health and wellbeing through data and cooperation
Based on a collaborative, transparent and inclusive approach to governance, the co-operative supports people and organisations to:
- Understand and act on the insights from civic data,
- Provide innovative solutions to real life problems,
- Facilitate access to open sources of civic data,
- Test models for ethical, inclusive use of health data.
Our focus is on increasing public trust in the digital health ecosystem and ensuring the opportunities offered by this capability are in support of reducing health inequalities. The CDC team is also working within the university to connect the research ambition to real time data used for direct care to improve the lives of LCR residents while driving economic growth in health tech and digital sectors in the region.
