To establish the University’s standing and increased reputation for quality research and strategic partnerships with funders, government and business, we have chosen to actively place our Research Centres and Groups at the heart of our strategic plans.

Research LCWPH 2 Col Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health (LCWPH)

Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health focuses on solving the most pressing global environmental and societal problems emerging from the world’s largest rivers. These include climate change impacts on extreme floods and droughts, flood-related contamination from metal mining and processing, and waterborne and vector-borne diseases affecting humans and animals where riverine environments provide the principal habitat.
