CCRI to host $1.5m Central Coast Health and Wellbeing Living Lab

The Greater Cities Commission has announced $1.5m in funding to the Central Coast Local Health District to create the Central Coast Health and Wellbeing Living Lab in partnership with the University of Newcastle and hosted by the CCRI in Gosford.

The Living Lab will focus on designing innovative approaches to the health and wellbeing of older people to enable ageing-in-place, and to act as a test-bed for solutions to support commercialisation of ideas and to promote real-life applications and positive impact on older people across the Central Coast community. The announcement is an important early step to develop and strengthen the Central Coast Health and Wellbeing Precinct.
