The University of Southampton

ECS Centre for Health Technologies (CHT) was established in 2018 by the School of Electronics and Computer Science to facilitate coordination between ECS academics and practitioners in the health domain, such as the fields of e-health, healthcare technologies, wellbeing and rehabilitation. ECS has significant expertise spanning many areas in the health domain, and wishes to continue collaborations and outreach with health partners.


The ECS CHT aims to provide a catalyst for new collaborations and partnerships between ECS and health partners. Impact is delivered by the CHT through:

  • The organisation of outreach events to facilitate matchmaking between health practitioners and ECS researchers.
  • Public briefing events at open days and science festivals to share knowledge of advancements in health technologies.
  • Promotional material including videos and social media posts to advertise the achievements of CMI memebrs and the university at large.

A number of events to establish collaborations and inform stakeholders. The Events page contains a summary of past events and upcoming announcements.


How do I get Involved ?

We welcome partnerships with industry and government agencies to organise events and to co-create research questions. We work hard to identify the appropriate reserchers within ECS for your problem. We support our partners through joint bids for grants for large projects or through direct consultancy for one-to-one business critical solutions.
