Research Tilburg University

At Tilburg University, we seek to study and understand society and in this way we contribute to solving complex societal issues. That is what drives us. And we achieve it through state-of-the-art knowledge in the disciplines of economics, business studies, and entrepreneurship, the social and behavioral sciences, law and public governance, the humanities and digital sciences, and theology.

Research and collaboration

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.

Tilburg University cultivates its culture of cooperation and co-creation – locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Performing our core activities, we seek to connect with other educational institutions, the business community, governments, and civic organizations as well as with our alumni at home and abroad. Drawing in part on our excellent cooperation in MindLabs and JADS, the Jheronimus Academy of Data Sciences, we are intensifying our efforts to work together with public and private partners.

The unknown fascinates us and we are keenly aware of the imperative of collaborating with other disciplines. We are curious and we invest in new opportunities digitization opens up for us to study people and society.
