Loughborough University London Supports Research for Greenwich Smart City Programme

Loughborough University London

Loughborough University London is a partner in the A Silicon Valley for Greenwich, a project that will contribute to the Smart City programme for Greenwich, launched last year.

The programme sets out how the Council proposes to implement ‘smarter’ approaches to the challenges it faces delivering services in the Borough and in creating new opportunities.

The research, which is being led by Ravensbourne and also involves the University of Greenwich, will focus on the preventative healthcare agenda for young people. The project will link healthcare professionals and digital providers with community networks and ensure that the needs and views of young people are addressed.

The experiences and views of the young people will be recorded through digital narratives. This will have a direct benefit to the young people who will be able to develop skills, build confidence and relationships, better understand personal needs and build trust with health care providers.

Loughborough University London will specifically lead the development, implementation and evaluation of the collaborative service design approaches throughout the project. These approaches will be used to engage the project partners and support the co-creation of the new services.
