Lincoln University hosts, organises or contributes to many different conferences or symposiums every year. Most are established to provide a platform for showcasing research findings to stakeholder groups or interested parties and to increase networking opportunities to strengthen collaboration within particular disciplines. As a well renowned academic institute with considerable investment in quality research, Lincoln University is able attract worthy external contributors and speakers alongside its own resident experts.
