Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC)
Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC), a joint research center of the Tilburg Law School and the Tilburg School of Economics and Management, conducts research on governance of economic activity at the frontier between law and economics. Over the past 10 years TILEC has become known for its interdisciplinary method, path-breaking research output and societal relevance.Building on Tilburg University’s mission to contribute to the quality of today’s society, TILEC was born out of the recognition that the traditional ways of organizing academic research - along disciplinary lines - are no longer adequate to address the complex issues of today’s world. Furthermore, the outside world expects researchers from law and economics to work together, putting a premium on research that rests on both disciplines. TILEC is the vehicle for doing so.
This year TILEC is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

'Center of Excellence', so that they can continue to play a prominent national
and international role in their research field. The status of 'Center of Excellence' provides additional financial
resources. More information (only in Dutch)
