Low Ionization Nuclear Emission-line Regions (LINERs) are  
characterized by low ionization AGN optical emission lines from the  
center of their host galaxies.
Those latter are found to have a surprisingly high FIRs luminosity by  
observations with Herschel/PACS of a sample of LINERs at z~0.3.
I will discuss possible causes and consequences of FIR properties of  
LINERs host galaxies, how they affect the star formation rate  
estimates, and their connections  with the AGN emission.
