LINC-UP (Lincoln Innovation and Networking Conversations)
Work with other students and staff on collaborative projects… and make your own ideas happen.
For all staff and students to register to have one-off conversations, where shared interests and experiences can be explored and innovations can be considered. You will gain respected employability skills from working directly in partnership with staff who share similar ideas and networking with valuable contacts. Meet ups will be arranged throughout the year for discussions to develop into collaborative projects and students can gain advice and future professional opportunities.
Did you know that your participation hours can be logged as volunteer hours and contribute towards The Lincoln Award? . Find out more about The Lincoln Award.
