AIMES is the leading commercial provider of Trustworthy Research Environments (TRE) in the UK and provides a range of bespoke environments for the NHS and health researchers to store and analyse data.

AIMES is a Liverpool 5G Consortium partner who has supported the Liverpool 5G network development. Their Trusted Research Environment has been used to store and analyse data from the project safely.  Integrating the TRE into the network has created a demonstrator for an ecosystem where Personally Identifiable Data can be collated, pseudonymised or anonymised and accessed by researchers, under GDPR/DPA 2018 and robust DSP information governance compliant conditions. The AIMES TRE platform combines technologies that promote the development of learning health systems and the ingestion of data from the Liverpool 5G mesh network. The platform enables the development of new algorithms, including AI based services.

This unique resource forms part of Liverpool’s overarching strategy to be at the forefront of the practical and cost effective combining of digital technologies, big data and expertise. The aim is to improve service delivery in health and social care, resulting in a better quality of life and opportunities across Liverpool.
