The Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute (LHERI) has been established to foster and support existing and new higher education research at Lincoln; providing a platform for excellent and useful research being undertaken at the University (independently or with external partners). LHERI aims to develop expertise and impact through guidance and support to colleagues and by facilitating effective internal and external partnerships.

Additionally, the Institute is leading on a number of externally funded, institution-wide research projects, including the Learning Gain project, the evaluation strand of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) LiNCHigher project , and the University of Lincoln’s contribution to the collaborative HEFCE Catalyst Fund: Intervention for Success Project.
