The Lincolnshire Joint Research Agenda (JRA) is a collaborative project between the Lincolnshire NHS Trusts, which provide community, primary and secondary care services, and the LIH, which provides an access platform to a wide range of research expertise.

The project aims to:

  • Identify research priorities in COPD within secondary, primary and community care settings.
  • Map and describe service provision in Lincolnshire, and develop a network of potential collaborators and research sites interested in COPD
  • Develop fully specified research questions to direct collaborative research activities in COPD.
  • Complete a systematic review of evidence relevant to the jointly agreed research questions in COPD
  • Develop and submit grant applications in COPD
