Getting involved at Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT)
of Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) is to explore and
understand the interplay between technology, regulation and fundamental
values/human rights; to study emerging technologies, their impact on the
individual and society; and to assess the need for regulation of technologies.
Established in 1994, TILT has built a serious reputation in research, enabling
the development of a leading program in Law & Technology.
TILT is located at the 7th floor of the Montesquieu Building at the Tilburg University Campus. We have a fairly unique composition in being both large (around 50 researchers) and truly interdisciplinary (combining law, STS, political science, and sociology). The academic environment is very lively, with much interaction and collaboration between researchers, sharing of ideas and constructive commenting on each other’s ideas and work. We take our open-door policy seriously, fostering collaboration and camaraderie. Tuesdays hold particular importance as this is the day when reading groups, work in progress discussions, seminars and other meetings are planned, but you will often run into spontaneous discussions and brainstorm-sessions at other times. This congenial atmosphere stimulates social and intellectual interchange.
