Introducing the Greater Lincolnshire Manufacturing Network (GLMN)
An exciting new initiative founded by the School of Engineering and Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) Manufacturing Board, offering huge potential to support the manufacturing sector across the region and bridge the gap between academia and manufacturing businesses.
The LEP Manufacturing Strategy identified greater alignment between the manufacturing sector, the University of Lincoln, and the wider community, and this new network aims to facilitate visibility, accessibility and engagement with our Schools of Engineering, Chemistry and the broader College of Science.
The network will work to support the growth and development of SMEs and large organisations by promoting best practice, manufacturing solutions and partnership opportunities, and will showcase technological advances, cutting edge thinking and act as a knowledge-transfer vehicle between academia and industry.
GLMN will provide a knowledge-intensive business corridor locally at the heart of the manufacturing business in Greater Lincolnshire and will be open to all manufacturing businesses in Greater Lincolnshire. The network will be piloted for 1 year and members will be able to join free of charge.
As our network develops, so will the scope of our membership. Participating eligible* businesses will benefit from:
