White Rose Strategy

The White Rose strategy is to add value to the partner universities through collaboration in research, teaching and knowledge exchange. White Rose strategy requires a compelling logic for working together, with two key ingredients: (i) strong added value of collaboration; (ii) a priority for the universities. This strategy has worked well for 25 years and consistently delivered a pipeline of White Rose initiatives and external investment.

White Rose strategy evolved in 2022 to build on the existing approaches to collaboration by adding three White Rose strategic themes. The themes add a more forward-thinking philosophy and strategic clarity for building long-term collaboration in areas of particularly high importance. The three strategic themes are: (i) PhD Collaboration; (ii) Equality, Diversity and Inclusion; (iii) Culture and Careers.
