Routes – Social Science Research Enterprise Programme

Are you a social science PGR or ECR with an innovative research idea that could be developed into a new product, service or social enterprise?

Are you curious to understand what your research ideas mean in a practical way and how these can be developed outside of academia?

This is an exciting enterprise support programme that has been devised and delivered by the Universities of Leeds, York and Sheffield on behalf of the White Rose Doctoral Partnership. The first of its kind to be offered across the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership to provide social science PGRs and ECRs the unique opportunity to think about alternative routes for their research.

Whether you have a clear idea or not of the options and routes for your research, the programme can provide valuable insights and ideas. You will be given the chance to compete for prizes worth £2k. Prizes include dedicated time with a design team to visually develop their ideas.

You do not need to be ESRC funded to participate, this is open to all PGRs/ECRs in the Faculties of Social Science, Arts, Humanities & Culture, Environment, LUBs and Medicine & Health.
