Our academics excel in many different areas: research, education, societal impact, leadership, and team spirit. In the current system, performance in these areas is not recognized and rewarded in the same way, with a strong emphasis on research excellence, measured in quantitative terms. Both individual academics and institutions stand to gain from a system and culture change that leads to appreciation of a diversity of talents. Therefore, Tilburg University actively contributes to the joint national initiative to redefine the recognition and rewards of academics in such a way that it does justice to the domains of education, research, societal impact, leadership, and team spirit.
