The Lincoln Institute for Advanced Studies (LIAS) supports the curiosity that drives research at the University of Lincoln.

The Institute encompasses all disciplines within the University, promoting creativity and interdisciplinarity in research. It seeks to extend the public reach of the University through dissemination activities and external collaborations.

By supporting the growth of ideas, opportunities and activities, it aims to promote a vibrant, varied and outward-looking research environment.

LIAS offers fellowship schemes to bring prestigious international visitors to the University, travel schemes for academic staff to collaborate with researchers overseas, and focussed research development activities for academic staff to enhance their ability to attract research funding and to foster interdisciplinary relationships.
