Research: profile and quality
Quality, innovation, making connections, internationalization, and effectiveness drive our research and teaching. The basis is a high-quality research in the fields of Economics and management, Law, Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences and Theology. This research meets international quality standards.
We are connected with society, with other disciplines, and with other cultures. We embrace diversity and we learn from other perspectives and disciplines. We encourage our researchers and students to connect at every opportunity. We work together with partners in regional, national, and international ecosystems. With our strongest disciplines joining forces, we will be amplifying our impact. Spearheading the Broad Prosperity initiative, we will in the coming years fully commit to three interdisciplinary research themes: sustainability transition, inequality, and well-being & health.
To ensure that the results of our research are broadly available to society at large, Tilburg University has opted for Open Science publication wherever possible.
We also invest in our PhD students who, as the new generation of researchers, are of vital importance to the knowledge-based economy. We offer PhD programs for our own and for external PhD students and are partner in various international joint PhD programs.
