Impact program

Impact Program

The Tilburg University Impact Program brings together researchers and stakeholders in complex societal issues in order to advance society with the help of knowledge and innovation.

Climate and Energy Transition

In order to mitigate climate change and accelerate the energy transition international, European, national, and regional energy and climate goals must be translated into concrete action urgently. Together with societal partners, Tilburg University’s Climate and Energy Transition community aims to realize these actions.

The key obstacles are social

Even though new technologies can help, we need to solve the challenges at hand at the administrative, legal, financial and economic, psychological and above all social level. For example: citizens lack clear incentives to change behavior, complex regulations discourage initiatives, and cooperation between government, business and societal organizations is difficult. What we need is not only technological innovation but also social innovation.

Multidisciplinary research community

The Climate and Energy Transition research community brings together climate and energy researchers  from the social sciences, law, economics and humanities to enrich both research and cooperation with partners in science and society. Together we can empower as well as energize the resilient society.
