About the Lincoln Policy Hub
The University of Lincoln delivers research that has a positive impact on communities at a local national and global level: informing policy, influencing decisions, and potentially changing lives. Our researchers work closely with government, parliamentarians and civil society, placing evidence and academic rigour at the heart of policymaking.
The Lincoln Policy Hub was launched in May 2021 to bring together the latest insights, evidence and commentary from our researchers, in a one-stop-shop for both academics and policymakers. By connecting politicians, decision makers, and practitioners with our research, we can help deliver evidence-based policy that meets the challenges facing society today.
The Lincoln Policy Hub was created by Mark Bennister with Jo Edwards at Lucidity and Alexandra Meakin. The Hub was funded by a Research England QR SPF allocation. Digital support Digital Student Life.
