What we do

The Liverpool City Region Civic Data Cooperative (LCR CDC) is funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) and hosted by the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liverpool. Our main objectives are to:

  • Connect civic organisations, industry experts, and the community to mobilise data across the region to improve the lives of our residents.
  • Act as advocates for the better use of data.
  • Engage communities on what’s happening with their data, data sharing and research in the region.
  • Help drive research using data to create positive change by showing organisations how best they can use data to generate insights and feed them back into the system.

Through this work, we believe we can encourage positive changes to the lives of residents across the Liverpool City Region.
