The Impact Program of Tilburg University connects researchers from various fields to partners outside academia to bring society forward. In cooperation we develop new insights and solutions for the complex challenges of the 21st century.
Tilburg University joins forces
We address questions from society itself: how to improve resilience, care and wellbeing of people and how to create value from data are topics we believe are essential. Our expertise from social, economic, legal and cultural sciences helps to advance society in the digital age.
Our researchers and partners have the floor:
Expertise Tilburg University
To create more impact on both science and society in this regard, we focus on three major issues: Empowering the Resilient Society, Enhancing Health and Wellbeing, and Creating Value from Data.
Creating Value from Data
How to guarantee reliability and responsible use of data?
Empowering the Resilient Society
Resilience: Our society faces issues whose consequences are difficult to oversee.
Enhancing Health and Wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing: To actually improve health and well-being, we must make decisions that are also beneficial in the long term.
