Data Driven Research and Innovation (DDRI) Programme

DDRI Programme information

The Data Driven Research and Innovation (DDRI) Programme is a major strategic initiative by Coventry University that collaboratively brings together a significant number of its Research Centres with strategic partner organisations that are amongst the leaders in their respective sectors. The DDRI Programme is pursuing cutting edge inter-disciplinary research and innovation involving residential facilities and properties of various types, as well as private vehicles and public transport services, and there is a strong community focus throughout. Its major goal is to use data driven analytics and insights to support independent living, healthy ageing, improved quality of life, well-being and care (self-care or care from others), improved management of particular health conditions and enabling people to stay in their own homes for longer. The use of smart buildings and intelligent mobility to support improvements in health, care and well-being are both important development areas.

As a key part of the Programme, Coventry University is fully funding 9 PhD’s across a range of disciplines with the close involvement of Residential Partners (who will provide access to resources and facilities) and University Partners that bring a broad range of complementary capabilities and national reach through their combined regional locations. The Residential Partners include one of the UK’s leading Housing Associations, and one of the UK’s leading specialist care facility providers. The PhD’s will have access to a wide range of cutting edge university facilities that are pertinent to their respective research areas, and will work closely with the partner organisations.

The PhD’s are of two types:

1. Inter-Disciplinary PhD’s – these involve collaboration between different Coventry University Research Centres, where the lead centre provides the Director of Studies and there is co-supervision from all of the collaborating centres

2. Inter-University PhD’s – these involve collaboration between Coventry University and a partner University, where the lead Coventry Research Centre provides the Director of Studies and there is co-supervision from all of the collaborating centres at both Universities.
