The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) is to collaborate with Tilburg University in the field of information management. The agreement between Tilburg School of Economics and Management and the UN organization, which is responsible for, among other things, the coordination of emergency aid after disasters, was digitally signed last Wednesday.

"It's a mutual recognition," said associate professor and initiator Kenny Meesters in an interview with Univers. "With this we want to expose the research we do to practice and put young students in contact with experienced people in the field."
