TNO is an independent research organisation. We believe in the joint creation of economic and social value. Innovation with purpose is what TNO stands for. We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application. We focus on transitions or changes in five social themes:
Our mission is to connect people and knowledge, to create innovations that boost the competitive strength of industry and the well-being of society in a sustainable way. Our strategy is a reflection of the trends we observe in society and technology. In close coordination with our stakeholders we have defined five transitions on which we will focus. These are in line with the challenges and ambitions of the Top Sector policy and social themes in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.
