Digital Futures / Manchester Ecosystem: Urban Health & Post-COVID Recovery

Citylabs 1.0, Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9NQ

This GM Connected Health Ecosystem is being held in collaboration with the Digital Futures Health & Care and Cities and Environments themes. We will be meeting in-person at Citylabs 1.0 where refreshments and lunch will be provided.


Understanding the multifaceted relationships between our changing urban environments and human health and wellbeing has long been recognised but often poorly understood by those with responsibilities for designing and managing our cities. For the past 30 years or so the WHO European Healthy Cities Network has led the way in attempting to steer healthier urban environments.

Despite this we still evidence showing large variations in healthy outcomes for residents across different parts of cities. In this Manchester Connected Health Ecosystem workshop we are bringing together a range of experts in health informatics and urban planning and spatial analysis to explore how we can work more closely together and develop innovative responses in support of healthy cities.

More information and agenda to follow.

Registration for the Connected Health Ecosystem is now open – tickets are limited, so we recommend securing your place now. 


The Ecosystem, which is coordinated by Digital FuturesHealth Innovation Manchester, the Christabel Pankhurst Institute and the ERDF, plays an important role in bringing together key organisations and personnel in this area, creating a platform for sharing new and important policy developments, research, funding opportunities and innovations.

We are a member of the European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance), a network of permanent multi-stakeholder Ecosystems across Europe, North America & China.
