White Rose Brussels

White Rose Brussels

White Rose Brussels Office is the European office of the White Rose University Consortium, a strategic partnership of three UK research-intensive, Russell Group universities – the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The purpose of the White Rose Brussels Office is long-term strategic positioning of the three White Rose universities to key stakeholders in Brussels to influence EU research policy.

University of Leeds – The University, established in 1904, is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK. We are renowned globally for the quality of our teaching and research. The strength of our academic expertise combined with the breadth of disciplines we cover, provides a wealth of opportunities and has real impact on the world in cultural, economic and societal ways. The University strives to achieve academic excellence within an ethical framework informed by our values of integrity, equality and inclusion, community and professionalism.

University of Sheffield – The University of Sheffield developed from three local institutions: the Sheffield School of Medicine, Firth College and the Sheffield Technical School. A world top 100 university with a reputation for teaching excellence and world-class research.  Sheffield has a global reputation for world-leading research that makes a difference. The University is committed to making the world a better place. This approach is embedded in everything we do, from partnerships with local and global organisations to our research and teaching.

University of York – Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students. Since then we have become one of the world’s leading universities, carving out a reputation as an academic powerhouse where a clear focus on excellence has secured national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions. We are a dynamic, research-intensive university committed to the development of life-saving discoveries and new technologies to tackle some of the most pressing global challenges.
