SHIFT and Centric Lab presents: innovation for health and wellbeing


We invite you to join the SHIFT team, Centric Lab and community partners as we present and discuss the findings from our latest research: “how can innovation make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing?”

Date and time: Tuesday 24th January, 2-3.30pm
Location: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, venue to be announced
Please register your attendance on our Eventbrite page.


SHIFT is all about creating better urban futures through inclusive innovation. Our health and wellbeing is complex, it’s connected and related to many aspects of our lives and as citizens of a global city can be under pressure quickly.

Centric Lab was recently commissioned by SHIFT to produce an analysis of the health trends in the boroughs of Newham, Waltham Forest, Hackney and Tower Hamlets. This piece of work aims to unpack the health and wellbeing trends and insights across east London; what is happening on the ground; what are people saying; what are the gaps between problem and solutions; what can SHIFT and east London innovators have a meaningful impact on? What might we do together?

We would like to invite you to hear findings from Centric Lab, and in light of these have the chance to share your thoughts and have a discussion on where innovation partners can have the greatest impact as we together grow the inclusive innovation district around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
