Background

The objective of the Fund is to support projects which have the potential to develop national and international linkages with the aim of these leading to larger more strategic initiatives for projects to support and encourage emerging collaborations across the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.

The White Rose Executive Board regularly reviews the Funds progress and has recognised the value of these collaborations in supporting emerging activities by funding two calls per year.

Applications are encouraged from staff in areas where there are no existing collaborations between the White Rose Universities. However this does not exclude existing areas of collaboration between the universities where support might lead to enhanced activity and significant funding opportunities.

Here are the projects we have already funded
