Overview of ‘Scientific Strengths’ Tilburg University

Published: 09th July 2019 Last updated: 16th March 2020

What are the research topics that Tilburg University wants to be associated with? What is our research profile? The Vice-Deans for Research have, together with the researchers, have reflected on these questions. The outcome is presented in the recent publication Scientific Strengths'.

A clear research profile is important. Not only for ourselves, but externally as well, in communicating with various stakeholders. This will make apparent our scientists’ core expertise and that of the university as a whole. To enable partners, both existing and future ones, to turn to us for help in analyzing (understanding) and addressing (advancing) their questions/problems, we need to make clear what our scientific strengths are and what we can be relied on to provide in terms of academic excellence.

Hopefully, this overview of our scientific strengths will stimulate cross-fertilization, cooperation, and collaboration, across Schools, departments, and disciplines.  A digital version of the publication is available at:
