Supporting the Defence and Security Sector
The defence and security industries are at the cutting edge of monumental change — ever-evolving to adapt, accelerate, and advance the UK's progress in technology, logistics, and education. As an anchor institution to a region possessing a rich military heritage, the University of Lincoln seeks to engage further with our defence and security community — sharing knowledge, developing skills, and encouraging innovation through collaborative research.
At the University of Lincoln, we intend to build on our existing sector-wide partnerships to continue our trajectory in providing evidence-based, sustainable, and forward-thinking solutions for our partners engaged in all forms of defence and security activity.
Greater Lincolnshire Regional Defence & Security Cluster
The Greater Lincolnshire Regional Defence & Secuity Cluster (GL RDSC) is one of three formally recognised Clusters in the UK. It began as a network and industry-led forum founded by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, its Defence and Security Advisory Board, and the University of Lincoln. Bringing together national and international defence organisations, manufacturing, research, development and innovation expertise, the Cluster provides a single forum to overcome sector challenges and identify business opportunities in Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland, while identifying opportunities for funding and innovation-led initiatives.

Partnering with the Supply Chain
As well as supporting our nation’s armed forces and the MoD, the University works closely with supply chain organisations such as SRC UK, BAE Systems, and Leonardo to deliver collaborative projects, research, and educational partnerships. Our understanding and experience of the sector’s demands and challenges from supplier to end user positions us strongly to help our partners innovate, upskill, and increase productivity.
