New website research program Digital Society

This week the new website about the research program Digital Society has been launched. In the research programme thirty professors of the fourteen Dutch universities join forces and are working together to secure the Netherlands leading international position in the field of human-centred information technology and to find solutions to global challenges.

The research program focuses on seven important societal themes on which digitalization will have a great impact: Citizenship & Democracy, Responsible Data Science, Health & Well-Being, Learning & Education, Work & Organizations, Digital Cities & Communities and Safety & Security.

From Tilburg University several professors as well as rector Emile Aarts are already involved in the research program: Ton Wilthagen for the theme of Citizenship & Democracy, Margriet Sitskoorn for Health & Well-Being, Max Louwerse for Learning & Education and Corien Prins and Linnet Taylor for Responsible Data Science.
