Visitor Economy Research Group

Visitor Economy Research Group

The Visitor Economy Research Group (VERG) was launched in March 2015. It aims to harness the research energies of a number of colleagues, both early career and well established, who are working in the areas of tourism, events and leisure.  Large-scale projects associated with the Group are: research for the Lincoln City Council on visitor satisfaction at, as well as the economic impact of, the Lincoln Christmas Market, and participation in the preparations to launch the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln.

                                                            

What are we Doing?

 

Our aim is to foster an ethos of research activity by:

  • Producing high-ranking research outputs
  • Increasing external research income
  • Fostering a supportive research environment
  • Maximising the external impact of our research
  • Encouraging interdisciplinary research
