UNIVERSITY AIMS TO FOSTER CLOSER LINKS

 

Business and academic leaders in and around Lincolnshire are being invited to take part in a series of talks at the University of Lincoln.

 

PhD students and research staff at the university have organised the seminars to try and forge closer links with the local community.

 

In the first of the series which is entitled ‘The University in Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire in the University’, Business Link Lincolnshire and Rutland Chief Executive Tina McEwan will speak about the developments of Business Link in the region.

 

PhD student John Mendy from the Faculty of Business and Law is organising the talks which will be held on a monthly basis throughout the forthcoming academic year, in collaboration with other PhD students and staff.

 

“The university’s research community is continuously seeking to create an educational and entrepreneurial atmosphere to encourage the full personal, academic and professional development of those it serves within the county and those who serve the institution,” said John.

 

“The Faculty of Business and Law is delighted to be able to organise this series of talks in a bid to develop research partnerships between the university and the business and academic community within and outside Lincolnshire.”

 

The first talk will be held at 6.30pm on Thursday 22nd September in the Jackson Lecture Theatre on the Brayford Pool Campus. Refreshments will be served at 6pm.

 

Anyone who is interested in attending is welcome to turn up on the day.
