Meet the people at White Rose DTP

The Management Group is part of the formal governance of the DTP.

The Management Group (MG) agrees and oversees the strategic priorities of the DTP (in the context of the institutions’ and ESRC’s strategic plans) and oversee the implementation of ESRC’s guidance on the distribution of studentships, the establishment of new programmes etc in line with its original objectives.

In terms of the overall strategic direction, the MG:

  • focuses on encouraging and embedding collaboration
  • initiates the development of interdisciplinary programmes
  • maximises the quality of provision
  • encourage the spread of good practice.

The MG is responsible for ensuring the output targets of the DTP are met.  The MG ensures partner views are sought and considered in reaching decisions and reviews and approves all necessary processes for the efficient and effective conduct of the DTP.
