Talent and enterprise go hand in hand. Tilburg is a testing ground for a number of initiatives, with both economic and social added value. Companies and education find each other here via innovative hubs like Mindlabs. And the educational quality is superior. Tilburg University has been the best general university in the Netherlands for years, and Tias can call itself the best business university in the Netherlands. So, Tilburg is a real Brain City.
MindLabs is a collaboration of three Tilburg educational institutions and the Persgroep. The ROC Tilburg, Fontys, the University of Tilburg all work together with the Persgroep in an innovative centre where the human side of (media) technology is central. The old train workshop “building 70” in the Spoorzone is the inspiring spot where this will all come together in 2021. Now MindLabs is operating from the Deprez building in the Spoorzone in Tilburg.
