University of Lincoln
The University of Lincoln is home to a vibrant international community, with students from more than 100 countries choose it each year for their studies. Its striking city centre campus provides a modern student-centred community that is recognised as setting a blueprint for excellence in its approach to working with industry. The university strives to offer teaching underpinned by a vibrant research culture, and it is proud of its Student as Producer approach to teaching, learning, and engagement which emphasises the role of students as collaborators in the production of knowledge.
Role in COM³
The University of Lincoln has developed a body of research and expertise around support for SMEs’ digital technology adoption and use. COM³ provides the opportunity to expand this activity by making students central to discussions about technology non-adoption, so increasing their exposure to real-world problems and improving their problem-solving skills. The project will facilitate close working relationships between the University and SMEs in the region, and improve the potential for knowledge exchange.
Role in CORA
The University of Lincoln will play a key role in the CORA extension, by working with local municipalities to test and refine the CORA digital maturity model. It will lead on dissemination of findings and mainstreaming results from the project.
