The University of Lincoln have recently hosted a series of ‘update’ meetings to provide local engineering businesses with details of the significant progress being made towards implementation of The Bridge project. The meetings were well attended, with representatives from a number of Lincolnshire’s key industries present to discuss core technological requirements and laboratory infrastructure.

Plans for the new laboratory complex are at a particularly detailed stage, and University staff were able to outline the significant advances to the areas analytical capability that will be enabled by The Bridge.

Our website has a dedicated page devoted to plans of the new building. As well as cutting edge imaging equipment, such as transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, there will also be provision for tribology equipment, wet and dry preparation areas and a clean room environment.

Attendees at the update meetings were impressed by plans for the innovation lounge, which will be an integral part of The Bridge building, allowing for collaborative and networking opportunities, as well as professional development and training events. A series of advanced engineering seminars will be developed in due course to bring the Greater Lincolnshire engineering community together.

A slide deck, displayed at the update meetings, is available for any interested engineers – get in touch to request a copy.
