Resources & facilities
Top research requires top research resources and facilities. TiSEM offers research support as well as grant application support. The Tilburg University library offers an extensive collection of licenses for databases, datasets, books and journals. Facilities for data collection are offered among others at CentERlab (experiments) and CentERdata (panel of 2000 households).
Tilburg Science Hub, an online resource, helps individual researchers, data scientists, and teams to carry out data- and computation-intensive projects efficiently. It provides information about workflow and data management and tutorials on how to organize and document data and code, so the research becomes sustainable and reproducible. This in turn leads to time savings and transparency in the process. Researchers and students are invited to use this resource and contribute to it as well.
