COVID-19 update

We have continued to work from home, delivering our consultancy services and data-driven support to clients across the county. While we miss our building (and we know you miss it too!) the health and safety of our team and our visitors is our first priority.

To this end, we have suspended face-to-face activities until further notice, and we have also put a pin in our digitization activities until it is safe for us to return to the building. All building usage by external partners has also been postponed for the time being.

If you had an event booked with us before and you were hoping to pick up from where you left off in March of 2020, rest assured that we will be in touch as soon as we ca guarantee the safety and wellbeing of all our visitors. Companies whose bookings had to be cancelled due to the national lockdown will be given first refusal on rebooking with us.




The Lincolnshire Open Research and Innovation Centre has been founded as a hub of knowledge exchange.

As such, we are proud to offer spaces for events that bring together industry and academia, to further community cohesion, and to offer SMEs spaces to work and do events at the heart of Lincoln.

In addition to the equipment available in each room, we have a flip chart that we can offer, materials for creative activities, writing boards, and we can request additional IT equipment with enough advance notice.
