In 2012, joint venture partners, Lincolnshire Co-op and the University of Lincoln, founded Lincoln Science & Innovation Park to create a world-class environment for science, research and innovation in the city.
"Together with our partners, we have developed a collaborative community of science and technology businesses and university researchers in an innovative and flexible science park environment."

Lincoln Science & Innovation Park is built on the site of the fomer Ruston Bucyrus factory in the centre of Lincoln.
The Science Park has preserved much of this heritage by retaining the majority of the old HQ, Becor House, and the former substation that is now the reception area of Boole Technology Centre.
Before becoming Joseph Banks Laboratories, Becor House had a long life as Ruston Bucyrus' HQ.
Building started in the 1930s, but was not completed until after the end of the Second World War.
After its formation in 1930, Ruston Bucyrus became one of the largest and most recognisable manufacturers of construction and mining equipment in the world until its closure in 1985.
