The University of Lincoln is an institution founded by and for its communities, and committed to working with them in the development of new knowledge. A signatory to one of the first Civic University Agreements in the UK, the University of Lincoln is applying its research expertise to a wide range of areas with community relevance, locally, nationally, and internationally.
These include arts, justice, and migration; place-making and future cities; parliamentary democracy and community engagement; young fathers, parenthood, and play streets; and community archaeology, the heritage economy, and understanding medieval communities.
The newly formed LIIRH will conduct world-class research that focuses on the greatest health issues facing rural communities locally, nationally, and internationally.
Through their research, academic teams will examine the characteristic challenges these communities face, such as lack of healthcare facilities, poor transport infrastructure, workforce skills gaps, health inequalities, and poverty.
Working in partnership with a network of national and international collaborators, and acting in conjunction with the new Lincoln Medical School, the Institute is seeking to establish itself as the preeminent rural health institution worldwide.
The Centre for Culture and Creativity is a ‘think and do’ tank, researching and leading on cultural programmes and creativity.
It is part of the University of Lincoln’s commitment to, and investment in the civic and cultural life of the county, and the national and international conversation on creativity.
The Autism Research Innovation Centre (ARIC) is focused on strengthening the wider autism community through participatory action research. ARIC’s mission is to create a diverse and inclusive environment where community knowledge and academic expertise merge to produce evidence-based innovative professional approaches and services for enriching the lives of autistic people and those who support them throughout their lifespan.
We work to develop, evaluate, and cultivate evidence-based initiatives and protocols to strengthen the connection between autistic people and those supporting them.
CaHRU’s mission is to increase people’s health and wellbeing by improving the quality, performance, and systems of care across the health, social, and third sector care services through our world-leading interdisciplinary research with service users and health service professionals and organisations.
We work closely with our Healthier Ageing Patient and Public Involvement (HAPPI) group which provides invaluable patient input into the development of new studies and supports existing studies.
This group brings together work on parliaments and legislatures at the University with the aim of developing the University of Lincoln as a recognised centre of excellence for research and teaching in parliamentary studies.
The group's aim is to enhance research, facilitate impact, and promote engagement with parliaments and legislatures in the UK and beyond. The group reflects a wide range of experience and expertise in parliamentary studies and associated fields, together with a variety of methodological approaches.
The Medieval Studies Research Group brings together academics with interdisciplinary interests both in the medieval period itself and in the later interpretation and representation of the medieval past.
Researchers have a strong relationship with the wider scholarly and professional community including Lincoln Cathedral archives with who they collaborate in both teaching and research.
The interdisciplinary Child Friendly Research Network provides academics from across the University of Lincoln with the opportunity to come together to develop work around children, young people, and families.
The network explores interdisciplinary solutions to the problems affecting children and young people, and aims to establish mechanisms for young people’s participation within research which help to shape research agendas that matter to them.
