With De Bont, the Tilburg Executive Board claims to have brought in a capable administrator with broad experience. “She has a very good understanding of developments within the social sciences and more specifically the developments surrounding AI and data sciences. She has connective strengths as a leader, both substantively and in relations. We are convinced that Antoinette will make a significant contribution to the further development of the strategy pursued by the School and the university.”

Antoinette de Bont was Vice-Dean for Research in Rotterdam and then also Vice-Dean for Education for two years. She was also involved with international partners in the establishment of a joint European Master’s in Health Economics and Management.

Last year, she also received the FAME (Female Academics Moving toward Equity) Athena Award for her contributions in promoting diversity and inclusiveness.
