Activities HSRI

By fostering cross-departmental research, the Herbert Simon Research Institute (HSRI) contributes to advancing scientific knowledge on complex societal, organizational, and behavioral issues and challenges. Scientists from within and outside the Institute are welcome to join our Working Group Meetings and connect with our researchers. HSRI researchers can submit proposals for PhD positions and Seed Funding in our yearly calls.

Research networks

At Herbert Simon Research Institute, we have several work groups where we exchange ideas and get to know each other. Do you organize a research network and would like to be listed here? Or do you wish to found a new research network that fits one of the three cross-cutting themes? Please contact Floortje Mols (for the theme "Personalized prevention and care"), Yvonne Brehmer (for the theme "Healthy lifespan"), or Karina van de Voorde (for the theme "Adaptive societies, organizations, and workers").

Ageing Network – Tilburg University
Personalized Prevention and Care TESC
Work and Health Working Group
Dementia Community Tilburg University

HSRI cross-cutting theme day

Every year there is a HSRI Cross-cutting theme day on which recent research findings and ideas on the three cross-cutting research themes will be presented. This day will offer opportunities to HSRI members to share research ideas and findings, receive input, find colleagues for collaboration and to be inspired by the interdisciplinary research within HSRI.

Support for internal HSRI meetings

Around the year, HSRI researchers can apply for financial support for meetings that foster cross-departmental work within Tilburg School of Social and Behavioural Sciences. The meetings can also include people from outside the school. Please send an email with a proposal to Floortje Mols (for the theme "Personalized prevention and care"), Yvonne Brehmer (for the theme "Healthy lifespan"), or Karina van de Voorde (for the theme "Adaptive societies, organizations, and workers"). You will receive a final decision within 3 weeks.

The proposal should contain:

  • The names and affiliations of the applicants
  • The expected amount of attendees (internal and external)
  • The requested budget (with explanation)
  • A description of the added value of the proposed meeting for interdisciplinary collaboration within TSB
  • In case budget for an external speaker is requested, please explain how the participation of this external speaker adds value to cross-departmental work within TSB.

PhD project calls

Once a year, there is a call for PhD projects, open for all HSRI researchers, to facilitate internal cross-departmental collaborations and inter-disciplinary research within HSRI. For further information regarding the application and evaluation procedure, please contact Yvonne Brehmer, Floortje Mols or Karina van de Voorde.

Cross-cutting themes

The Herbert Simon Research Institute for Health, Well-being, and Adaptiveness is a research center devoted to carrying out excellent, state of the art research in order to contribute to healthy and resilient people. We have selected three themes, which involve the collaboration between various Departments  and address actual themes in need of both fundamental and applied research.
