Welcome to White Rose

Welcome to The White Rose University Consortium – A strategic partnership between 3 of the UK’s leading research universities, Leeds, Sheffield and York.

Since 1997 the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have built on their individual strengths by collaborating through the White Rose University Consortium to add value from partnership activity in research, enterprise, innovation and learning and teaching.   Working with a range of partners from the private and public sector, both in the UK and overseas, projects to the value of over £130M have been secured into the Universities.   As the Higher Education sector undergoes numerous changes and challenges, our commitment to creating exciting collaborations remains and we continuously strive to achieve our aims of supporting research, knowledge exchange and teaching and learning.

Collaboration Fund

Light bulbLaunched in October 2008 and designed to support emerging collaborative activities across the three White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.  We run two rounds a year, in Spring and Autumn and award up to £11,000 per project with a total of 8 projects being awarded each year.  You can either see more about the fund here or  Claire Pickerden will be happy to help with any queries.

White Rose Studentship Networks

Studentship Networks

We have the aspiration that funded networks will act as platforms for future funding bids.  We therefore advise applicants to consider how the Studentship Network will align with opportunities from funding bodies (for example the Research Councils’ priorities) and to include this information in the proposal.  You can see more information about the scheme here

White Rose Libraries

The White Rose Libraries is a collaboration between the Library Services of the three partner institutions of the Consortium. Taking advantage of the geographic proximity of the universities, their similar strategic and operational focus as large research libraries, and the existing links between their researchers, students, and staff, the White Rose Libraries have worked together […]

White Rose University Press

The Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have collaborated to launch the UK’s first jointly-run university press, dedicated to publishing digital open access books, journals, and other scholarly outputs across a wide range of academic disciplines. White Rose University Press (WRUP) is committed to open access dissemination of research and teaching materials, ensuring academic quality, […]
