NVI - Hot Topic : CityVerve: Helping to Make Manchester a Smarter, Healthier City

CityVerve brings together the brightest minds and pioneering use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to redefine ‘smart’ in the context of a living, working city. It aims to build and deliver a smarter, more connected Manchester. It means creating a city that uses technology to meet the complex needs of its people.

On Wednesday the 31st May, we will be joined by Carmel Dickinson , programme manager for Manchester Informatics - University of Manchester digital research institute. Carmel had a lead role in setting up Europe’s first connected health ecosystem and brings together a GM Ecosystem of stakeholders to accelerate the adoption of Connected health technology to directly benefit Manchester Citizens.

Carmel will give an overview of how the CityVerve project is applying IoT technology to health and wellbeing and and how this will help improve the lives of citizens. Carmel will explore the cross-thematic insights that can be gathered from the data we collect and how this will be demonstrated as a blueprint for smarter cities worldwide.

This is the third installment of four NVI events centred around CityVerve. We hope you can join us for this interesting session and debate.

This event is part of the National Virtual Incubator (NVI) - a pioneering new network supported by the UK government to support startups by connecting incubation centres, research facilities, science parks and academic institutes through its growing number of national bases.
