A valued aspect of the Collaboration Fund is seeing the new innovative ideas submitted by Early Career Researchers. The scheme, originally launched in October 2008, has enabled academics from the universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York to undertake cross-discipline multi-partner research.
The scheme has helped to raise the profile of the White Rose universities and assisted the careers of researchers.
Further details of the autumn round will be announced shortly, in the meantime if you have a project idea or any questions please contact Claire Pickerden or Karen Tsui.
