How we connect with your data
About LCR CDC
The Liverpool City Region Civic Data Cooperative (LCR CDC) is a data governance project funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) and hosted by the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liverpool.
We work closely with the public sector, business and academic organisations, including System P and CIPHA. Our collective work aims to create an environment where data can be accessed, linked and analysed securely for the benefit of society, and provide guidance to researchers, industry experts, and the public in relation to data use.
Our role is to connect organisations, and citizens, in our region to appropriate data in order to help improve service delivery and solve big problems. We want to create a vibrant, internationally visible, civic data environment which will enable residents’ data to work harder for them to shape better care and fuel globally important innovations from the Liverpool City Region. Based on a collaborative, transparent and inclusive approach to governance, the Civic Data Cooperative will support 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
Through this collaborative process, we believe we can encourage positive health and well-being changes across the Liverpool City Region.
Enable positive change in health and wellbeing through data and cooperation.
