Understanding Society

Tilburg University is convinced that it can contribute to solving social issues by developing and transferring knowledge and bringing together people from various disciplines and organizations.


On March 9, 25 teams of students and staff presented their ideas on the future of the university in six minutes each. This high pace made Speech2025 a dynamic and active event with room to respond to  the presentations given.

Speech 2025 was a great event, that provided a forum where dreams could be expressed, where everyone of our academic community had the opportunity to tell what they want to continue or stop doing: including teachers, researchers, students, staff, representatives of the Divisions, participation bodies, etc.

All input harvested will be gathered and published on the website as well as via Tilburg University’s regular communication channels. Above all, it will form the input for the writing phase of the Strategic Plan.

This was the program of March 9.
