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.

Tilburg University Dataverse

The Tilburg University data policy is that the empirical data of all academic research studies that are reported in academic publications should be documented and archived in such a way that they can be replicated. But also when the data are unique in their kind and when the exact same data collection cannot be replicated (for example, because the data are related to a unique time and place), it is important to share these data with other researchers.
