To establish the University’s standing and increased reputation for quality research and strategic partnerships with funders, government and business, we have chosen to actively place our Research Centres and Groups at the heart of our strategic plans.
Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health (LCWPH)
LCWPH will focus on solving the most pressing global environmental and societal problems emerging from the world’s largest rivers (WLRs). These include climate change impacts on extreme floods and droughts, flood-related contamination from metal mining and processing, water-borne and vector-borne diseases affecting humans and animals, where riverine environments provide the principal habitat.
Rural Research Group
The Rural Research Group is an inter-disciplinary social science research group with members from each of the University’s 4 colleges. Our aim is to support a collection of academics researching issues relating to rural development from the local to the international scale.
