Tilburg University 90 years

The 90th Dies Natalis

The theme of this official ceremony will be 'The Digital Society'.

Digital information technology is increasingly important in our society. The Netherlands is a compact, highly developed, well-organized country, with excellent physical and digital infrastructures. Tilburg University’s high-level research is internationally recognized and our researchers have experience in multi-disciplinary and cross-border collaboration. Thus, Tilburg University is uniquely placed to invest in innovative research, together with other knowledge organizations, business, government, and NGOs, to become a pioneer in human-oriented information technology, education, and research.

This year’s Dies Natalis also marks the celebration of our 90th anniversary. A variety of celebratory events are taking place on and off campus.
