Education in the Age of Industry 4.0: A Collaborative Academic and Industry Conference

Mon, July 29, 2019
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Education in the Age of Industry 4.0’ is a national, one day conference which will bring academics together with industry leaders to discuss the outcome of a major project to identify and close digital skills gaps across industries in the UK.

In January 2018 the University of Lincoln secured funding from the Office for Students for the Industrial Digitisation for the 21st Centuryproject. The project aimed foster collaboration between employers and experts from the University to create course materials designed to equip learners to meet the digitalisation challenges that our industrial partners face now and in the future.

Now, a year after the project was launched, the conference will offer an opportunity to share the knowledge gained as well as strategies to meet the workplace challenges of Industry 4.0 through a series of talks, interactive displays and networking.

Speakers will include academics from the University of Lincoln, the University of Birmingham and Liverpool John Moores University alongside key industry figures including Martin Collison, Director of Norfolk based rural and agri-food development consultants Collinson & Associates Ltd and Melanie Armstrong, a Senior Advisor at Coventry’s Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).

Talks will cover how we can optimise the food chain by using automation and digitisation to create higher quality jobs through to how we can embed Industry 4.0 into the curriculum in every aspect of the University STEM subjects through to arts and business.

Moana - Water of Life: Navigating Climate Change for Planetary Health

Fri, 30 Aug 2019, 09:00 –
Sun, 1 Sep 2019, 14:00 BST

Scientists tell us that the Earth’s climate is changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilisation through human-induced global warming. Resulting weather extremes cross all borders socially, geographically and generationally. We live in a world shaped by the decisions of our ancestors. Our decisions will decide the size of the carbon footprint inherited by future generations.

On behalf of the Diocese of Lincoln and the University of Lincoln, we invite you to a conference that seeks to navigate ways that science and the church can be leaders, both in caring for creation and measuring the effectiveness of our actions.

The conference is collaborative in nature. There are voices from science and theology in the UK, Oceania, and the United States. These contexts demonstrate that rising tides and falling reservoirs leave us with too much water and not enough water. The experiences, and work undertaken in our companion Diocese of Polynesia will tell of islands in crisis.

This conference aims to identify action we can take together rather than statements that can be made. Conference outcomes include a case study of the impact of the conference and the launch of the Lincoln Diocesan Environmental Policy. It can be a resource for the county of Lincolnshire and beyond.

The conference will plant trees to offset its carbon footprint and will also feature a three course dinner with a low carbon footprint in the Cathedral Chapter House. A full timetable of events will be available online from June at www.lincoln.anglican.org

The conference begins at 9am on both days with a welcome to delegates on the Friday. There will be a Market Place, open Friday and Saturday in the foyer of the Minerva Building, will have a range of stalls and exhibitors who are already active at either a local or national level in seeking a sustainable future for the planet.

Academic Professional Apprenticeship Programme

The University of Lincoln is launching an exciting new programme to support the development of our academic community.

The Academic Professional Apprenticeship Programme is one of a suite of ‘trailblazer’ apprenticeships being offered by the University in support of the development and career progression of our staff. Funded by the Apprenticeship Levy, this two-year long course combines work-based learning with a Postgraduate Diploma in Policy and Practice in Higher Education, and is aligned to HEA Fellowship (D2).

The programme will be delivered by a community of scholars from across the University who are leaders in the fields of teaching and research, and will offer participants space to develop their teaching and research skills within a supportive learning environment.

Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart said: “I would encourage staff to consider taking this unique opportunity not only for their own personal development, but for the capacity to be part of a wider force for continuing positive change at Lincoln.”


The University is now inviting expressions of interest for the first cohort of the programme, which is scheduled to begin in January 2019.

For more information on the course, the application process, eligibility criteria, and key dates, please visit the dedicated Portal page. For an informal discussion please contact Programme Leader Lisa Gaughan by email lgaughan@lincoln.ac.uk or telephone ext 7614.
