The White Rose Brussels office was set up to raise the profile of the 3 leading research-intensive Universities in Yorkshire – Leeds, Sheffield and York. We spend our time engaging with key stakeholders in Brussels, including MEPs, personnel at the European Commission, policy groups and of course, our alumni.

Given the current testing times we are committed to continuing our activities and to reaffirming the value of our European partnerships to achieve sustainability for our world class research endeavours. We very much welcome your support.
