Sharing the Benefits

The University of Lincoln is committed to public engagement with research.

Research is fundamental to our mission as a university - this includes sharing the benefits of research with the wider public and creating opportunities for people to get involved.

Public engagement in research is a two-way process which can involve interaction, participation and learning. It spans a wide variety of activities - from public lectures and showcase events, to members of the public taking party directly in real research projects. 

Lincoln is a signatory to the Manifesto for Public Engagement published by the UK's National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).

The University's Public Engagement with Research team is headed by archaeologist Carenza Lewis, Professor for the Public Understanding of Research. The team leads the PEARL Project (Public Engagement for All with Research at Lincoln) funded by UKRI, enhancing the support, resources, opportunities and visibility for involving the public in research at Lincoln.
