Projects Digital Sciences for Society

Through its Digital Sciences for Society program, Tilburg University invests in research on the interface of digital sciences, social sciences and the humanities that contributes to solving today’s major challenges.

In June 2023, funding was awarded to 14 Growth Projects. In addition, four Icon Projects received funding in July 2023. The next batch of Icon Projects to be funded comes up in two years, and next year a new call for Growth Projects will go out.

  • Icon Projects are research projects with a duration of 3-5 years in which digital sciences are deployed or developed in innovative ways to realize multi-disciplinary approaches to addressing social issues. 
  • Growth Projects are more explorative in nature, last a maximum of two years and have the potential of developing into Icon Projects.
