Abstract

This report outlines the Onlincolnshire Knowledge Base Collaboration project undertaken by Lincoln Business School between May 2014 and September 2015. Onlincolnshire is a Lincolnshire County Council-run project which is part-funded by the East Midlands European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Programme 2007 to 2013. As well as improving the broadband infrastructure, Onlincolnshire delivered a range of support to Lincolnshire’s Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) through the “Business Connectivity in Lincolnshire and Rutland” (BCLR) strand of activities. This included short courses and one to one assistance covering topic areas such as social media, online marketing and web security. However a need was identified to enhance this provision to provide businesses with the opportunity to explore how digital know-how and ICT technology could be used to deliver significant growth benefits by working in collaboration with the University's knowledge base on a tailored project.
