At Lincoln International Business School, our aim is to deliver excellent research which benefits businesses and policy-makers while at the same time deepening understanding and contributing to our teaching. To do so we engage actively with a wide array of collaborative partners drawn from other universities, business, non-profit, government and non-government organisations across the world.
Our research engagement and collaboration is both local and global. Locally we work with partners here in Lincolnshire including Lincolnshire County Council, local businesses and community organisations. However, we are also conducting research in other countries or with international partners, from Columbia to China, Australia to Canada. We are strongly committed to collaboration within the EU and are currently a partner in an EU-funded Marie Curie Innovative Training Network with partners in Norway, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal and Spain.
