The Midlands Engine Observatory has been working with University of Lincoln’s Business School to integrate key Midlands economic and social priorities within an Applied Economics postgraduate module.

The partnership sees the Midlands Engine work with the Business School’s departments for Accountancy, Finance and Economics. Up to 10 postgraduate students have been undertaking research-based dissertation projects specifically related to these topics and the Midlands geography.

Once complete, some of this research will be profiled by MEO as published “insight” pieces – supporting the Midlands evidence base across a range of policy areas, while aiding the students in linking their research with real-world local challenges and opportunities.

The partnership will continue into future academic years while Midlands Engine and the University of Lincoln aim to extend their engagements and wider partnership.
