Night University 2017 - Back to the Future!

Night University is thé festival on the campus of Tilburg University. During this fun event the university brings science and society together because science is for everyone!

Tilburg University opened its doors during the fifth edition of Night University, the yearly festival of science in Tilburg. We went Back to the Future on Thursday November 16, 2017. Visitors immersed themselves in the past, the present, and the future. There were workshops, lectures and music of the twenties, the present, and the future.

The program components revolved around prejudices, science fiction in movies, sustainability, warfare, privacy and many more topics. Visitors watched Greg Shapiro assume the role of Donald Trump and experienced the cultural talents of our students.
