Affiliated Research


In addition to projects with staff based within LHERI, we also support higher education research work taking place elsewhere in the University by offering an opportunity to network, seek collaborators and to promote work.

In July 2017 we opened applications to our first Lincoln Higher Education Research Awards. Then during September 2017, we funded 11 projects.
