The CHERISH-DE Centre - Challenging Human Environments and Research Impact for a Sustainable and Healthy Digital Economy

Lead Research Organisation: Swansea University
Department Name: College of Science

Abstract

The CHERISH-DE Centre at Swansea University is predicated on an extensive understanding of the human context and condition alongside the potential and limitations of digital technologies. It draws on - and unfolds - the broad experience and talent available to it, in its multidisciplinary researchers, to weave new socio-technical materials that will provide effective, comforting and pleasing fabrics to support future living. We combine researchers (both in the Centre and in our partners) from social science, computer science, economics, medicine, arts and humanities and law.

Over the past decade, the Swansea team has developed a unique focus on multi-disciplinary work within challenging human environments. Specifically, we have collaborated with a broad range of stakeholders to understand and address fundamental challenges connected with health and social care; resource constrained communities; and, safety and security.This perspective has built a platform of enabling concepts, technologies, policies and approaches ready to facilitate next stage digital economy innovations and the people skills required. The CHERISH Centre will use the notion of an extreme and challenging human environment as the fulcrum to drive understandings of how future products and services can evolve to fit and extend the human condition.

By focussing on a person's lived experience in relation to the three challenging human environments and contexts (C1-C3), we will maximise the likelihood that digital innovations address real human needs and values and hence lead to effective products and services. Each interconnected context theme will be led by investigators from a mix of disciplines.

*C1 Health and social care (e.g., medical devices, e-health, health informatics, patient services);
*C2 Resource Constrained Communities (e.g., novel devices and services to access technology for social development and economic regeneration);
*C3 Safety and Security (e.g., cyberterrorism, cybersecurity, 'dark web').

Using the lens of a challenging human environment, the CHERISH-DE Centre will provide concrete, diverse impacts, stimulating and supporting digital innovation by:

*producing compelling case-studies, proofs-of-concepts and toolkits to platform future product, policy and service development that will enrich the social, economic and cultural life of UK citizens.

*creating and equipping a cadre of next generation Digital Economy (DE) researchers. The Centre will begin life with a dedicated core of experienced multidisciplinary research leaders, along with Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who have already been developed through the distinctive DE style of working. This team will draw in, train and innovate with strong discipline researchers across the host institution and partners in the UK - including the other DE Centres and related activities - and internationally. This growing team will not only be able to do DE-type work in private and public sector organisations but, critically, will be a credible and powerful advocate for the approach's methods and motivations.

The Centre has been shaped and will evolve through the support and intense engagement with key private, public and third sector stakeholders including the BBC, DVLA, Microsoft, IBM and, critically for the economy, a broad and deep network of Small to Medium Enterprises

Planned Impact

The CHERISH-DE Centre has impact at its heart. The Case for Support and the rest of the proposal detail the broad and diverse real and enduring impacts the Centre will foster - e.g., a portfolio of medical and social care demonstrators to stimulate new ways of working in hospitals and care contexts, sustaining and enhancing life; a framework to assist in the social and economic regeneration of a significant urban context, stimulating other City Regions in the UK to combine digital and physical interventions for truly involving local communities in the future development of their neighbourhoods; and, toolkits that enable the previously intractable formal proof led methods of computer science to be deployed by non-experts in critical safety and security domains.

In addition to providing a scaffold for significant new technologies, tools, policies and approaches that speak to the three challenge contexts, the Centre will pioneer cross challenge interactions. This approach will demonstrate the value of disrupting well established solutions in each area by applying impact-led thinking from others. For example, the multi-faceted approach to social care provision in the community can be applied to security contexts. So, the use of multiple agencies and supports to provide robust, integrated care to the vulnerable suggests a framework for digital and cyber security that is distinct from the single-point, highly engineered approaches in some conventional approaches.

Throughout the duration of the project, the Centre management team and all that engage it is endeavour will be focussed on this question: What measurable change is the work making to our society and economy? We will establish, and evolve, a series of measures of impact with our partners and others who join our activity to monitor and steer the work so that high-impact activities are prioritised. These measures will include:

A) Products and services stimulated by the work. The toolkits and frameworks we produce through open innovation are catalysts for private and public sector organisations. We will track both quantitatively and qualitatively the use of these resources. Our ambition is high: in pilot approaches that are built into the Centre we saw a six fold impact multiplier from each £1 invested.

B) People developed and enabled. Our aim is to provide a vastly enhanced human DE infrastructure to the UK. We will monitor this through personal development reviews; career tracking; and surveys of our partners and others to ensure that the people we are fostering can flourish and fit within the private, public and research sectors they will lead in the future.

C) Policies and approaches impacted. Impact in this arena does not happen - often - by chance or diffusion. The Centre has strong partners and a core agenda that is attractive to policy makers; and, an experienced team that has engaged actively with such stakeholders in the past. From the inception of the Centre we will gather evidence that the work is impacting civic operations and the wider public through monitoring policy statements, press reporting and local and national and international government actions and changes related to our work.

In addition to the £3M+ already leveraged from research users, we will assess the Centre's impact success against these measures as follows: 100 ECRs trained (nationally) through the Digital Economy Crucible; 75 international Fellowships (50 outward, 25 inward); 100 secondments with research users; 10 open innovation stakeholder-Centre spin out companies; 50 impact-driving proof of concept, toolkit and framework projects; and, £3 million additional income generated from interdisciplinary collaborations to sustain the Centre beyond the core funding. These figures are based on our wide experience of user engagement in large-scale University projects funded by RCUK and the EU.

PI Contribution At the suggestion of the National Clinical Informatics Lead (Nursing) for NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS), we propose to explore linking into the electronic records of Hywel dda University Health Board (UHB), to inform wider adoption. The current re-development offers opportunities to integrate ADRe (Adverse Drug Reaction), with new features.
Collaborator Contribution A research proposal was written for working in 3 areas. Workshops were undertaken in Hywel Dda and Aneurin Bevan. (attached) ADRe was made available on the Swansea University website (ADRe). ADRe was added to Hywel Dda's Care Partner electronic record system by IT staff. This was driven by clinicians. Extensive changes were needed before the text was able to fit with the current version of ADRe. The new features we requested (objective 2) are not possible, without further funding. The CMHT used paper copies of ADRe and scanned them into the electronic records, as this was easier than using the electronic version. However, using ADRe resulted in clinical gains (below). We are hoping to complete the proposal as a quality improvement initiative, using the allocated funds.
Impact We presented the work at the AWTTC Best Practice Day, Cardiff City Stadium. 10. 7. 18. The video is: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/adre/ on the last box 'care home case study'.

Sector Public 
PI Contribution This visit by Chris Lukinbeal and RA, Laura Sharp (Arizona) focuses on integrating geospatial technologies with cognitive and behavioral geographic methodologies via a presentation and series of meetings across the College of Science and beyond. Dr. Lukinbeal will demonstrate how perceptions of fear and safety as well as human activities can be mapped to reveal socio-spatial patterns. For instance, those living in high-crime areas tend to have less fear of crime than those living in low crime areas. Further, the activity space of individuals increases with higher education and higher income (as well as English fluency in the U.S.).
Collaborator Contribution The proposed visit will establish links with a variety of academics and stakeholders to demonstrate the potential of geospatial technologies to explore crime, safety and security. This connects with ongoing work spanning Geography and Computer Science (co-funded by ESRC, Ordnance Survey and Blurrt: Sergei Shubin and Matt Roach), building on established connections with Chief Superintendent Joe Ruddy, South Wales Police. It is also pertinent to other work on Geovisualization (Mark Jones, Joel Dearden); criminological uses of GIS (Marty Chamberlain, Criminology; Charles Musselwhite, Centre for Innovative Aging); and work in the Medical School and ESRC Administrative Data Research Centre (ADRC) Wales (Sarah Rodgers, Richard Fry, Samantha Turner, Ronan Lyons).

PI Contribution Anthony Charles completed a UK placement at NSPCC, 40 hours in total. Anthony's secondment centred around three interlinked goals. Namely, to: 1. Scope out research and policy work concerning 'sexting' by young people. This was achieved through the sharing of work between the host agency and the University, and through engagement with managers within the NSPCC and key, officers in partner. 2. Identify collaborative research opportunities. This was met through constructive discussion between the University and NSPCC, and the subsequent involvement of partner agencies in these discussions. A plan for a three tiered approach to operationalizing research in this area of activity was agreed from the development stage, piloting and through to pan-Wales research 3. Explore the possible nature and function of e-based solutions to advise and support young people who are affected by 'sexting'. This was realised through continuing collaboration concerning how a 'package' could be created, engaging young people as partners for change and as research leaders, to further research the pressures faced online by young people. Anthony's activity worked towards the building of a relationship with the NSPCC Policy and Public Affairs Officer. This involved e-mail correspondence, telephone calls and visits to the NSPCC Wales and London HQ offices. In addition, engagement also took place with other key NSPCC staff. This included the Wales Policy Manager; Wales Research Officer; UK Lead for On-line Safety and UK Research Manager. Through this engagement, further knowledge concerning the strategic priorities of NSPCC, work being undertaken, and gaps in practice and policy development were discerned (plus, support for an on-going research relationship between the NSPCC and the University was fostered). Through the secondment, and responding to what the literature and research suggest, further meetings took place with other partner agencies that have specialist knowledge of 'sexting' and who also are eager to become research partners.

PI Contribution Over the course of one week, Ruth shadowed officers in the Road Traffic Unit as they carried out their duties. She observed as they interacted with eyewitnesses at the scenes of a number of traffic accidents and got an incredibly valuable first-hand insight into the realities of front-line policing.
Collaborator Contribution South Wales Police allowed Ruth Horray to shadow officers in the Road Traffic Unit as they carried out their duties
Impact Based on the secondment experience, Ruth submitted a successful application for Cherish-DE pilot funding. The insights that she gained through her secondment enabled her to produce a much stronger application, as she and her co-applicants were better able to anticipate challenges that they might face throughout the project, and to identify additional benefits of a successfully delivered project. The pilot funds will cover the costs of initial meetings with officers from across South Wales Police. These meetings will enable them to gather information from end-users on their needs and requirements, which will allow them to develop a project with a higher potential for real-world impact. Following these meetings, they will apply for further funding to put together a digital app for recording witness accounts at the scene of an incident, and to pilot test the usability and efficacy of this app in the laboratory and in the field.

PI Contribution We have increasing numbers of older people and live in an increasingly "hyper"-mobile society, where we live further away from friends and family and the services and shops we need than ever before.
Collaborator Contribution Older people are more likely than other age group to have to give up driving, find accessing public transport difficult and have unmet travel needs. We need to improve the transport offering for older people and this study looked to help welsh government to examine the potential for technology to be able to do this, identifying the following potential a) use of digital technology to assist travel journey planning b) use of digital technology to provide in situ assistance and information access to public transport c) advantages and disadvantages of open data models over current and other alternative models of information provision d) Potential for personalised travel planning (PTP) to support older people (and others) to make travel choices (for reasons of safety, health, inclusion, sustainability) e) Identification of suitable channels and life events where PTP delivery would be most effective, and efficient (including when older people of people with long term limiting illnesses have to give up driving) f) Effectiveness of using illustration of full costs of different travel options to influence modal shift g) Transport provision models in sparsely populated areas, in particular for those without access to a car, and the impact of new digital technologies on delivery models ( considering impact of digital exclusion)
