Security and Defence

Building on a Rich Heritage

As an anchor institution to a region possessing a rich military heritage, the University of Lincoln seeks to engage with our defence and security community, sharing knowledge, developing skills, and encouraging innovation through collaborative research. We are also building on our existing sector-wide partnerships to continue to provide evidence-based, sustainable, and forward-thinking solutions for our partners engaged in all forms of defence and security activity, never more crucial in this ever-changing and unpredictable world.

In recognition of our work, we have been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award, being one of the first universities to receive this accolade. We continue to uphold our pledge to support members of the armed forces community, including our students, staff, and wider networks.

Securing Our Futures

The Greater Lincolnshire Regional Defence and Security Cluster is bringing together national and international defence organisations, manufacturing, innovation expertise, and research and development to provide a single forum to overcome sector challenges and identify business opportunities across the region.

Working with Our Partners

In collaboration with military organisations, the University offers a suite of work-based distance learning programmes for full-time serving, reservist, and veteran members of the Armed Forces seeking to gain a new qualification and improve their management skills to progress in their existing careers or prepare for the next.

We also work closely with supply chain organisations such as SRC UK, BAE Systems, and Leonardo to deliver collaborative projects, research, and educational partnerships. Our understanding and experience of the sector’s demands and challenges from supplier to end user positions us strongly to help our partners innovate, upskill, and increase productivity.
