Night University 2018 - Science Zoo

Night University is the exciting themed festival on the campus of Tilburg University. During this fun event the university brings science and society together because science is for everyone!

On Thursday, October 4th, our doors are going to be opened wide during Night University, THE Campus festival of Tilburg University! This ‘night’, our bustling university campus is the exciting place where science and society meet, because, after all, science is for everybody! There will be plenty of things to do, plenty of activities to choose from. You can go to all kinds of presentations, join debates, take tours, attend workhops, take part in experiments, and enjoy cultural performances.

Because this year’s edition of Night University coincides with World Animal Day, we are inviting everybody to come to Tilburg University’s Science Zoo on October 4th!!

This sixth edition will not only feature a ‘park’ filled with humanities and social sciences, but will also be paying a lot of attention to the overlapping world of humans and animals. What distinguishes humans from animals? How do we treat animals? What can we learn from animals? We will not only be dealing with questions like these, but also take a real look around on and around our campus. Where is animal life hiding in our immediate vicinity?

For this and lots more, check out our program available on this website from the beginning of September.

Looking back on last year: back to the future!
