Networking and Events

Creating Opportunities and Connections

At the University of Lincoln, we aim to share our knowledge and expertise while bringing businesses together. We offer a range of opportunities and events for businesses to engage with the University, our students, and other organisations in various sectors, enabling them to share ideas and create opportunities for innovation and development. 

Our business events include informal networking, workshops, conferences, sector specific briefings and ‘Dragon’s Den’-style opportunities for businesses. We also support our partners in delivering their events to provide opportunities for peer-learning, engagement with experts and shared experiences, as well as collaborative working.

We deliver an annual calendar of events across Lincolnshire. Topics can include innovation, collaborative research and digital-led technology within different sectors, exploring exporting, and general marketing support and advice. We strive to offer a different experience at each of our events to ensure out attendees gain the most from the day and continue to gain an insight into the business support services available across the University.
