The TNO brand

Quality and innovative strength - that is what the TNO brand stands for. The brand is such an essential part of our image that we protect it as best we can. When you come across the TNO brand you want to be sure that we genuinely are involved.

For TNO as a public organisation, it is important to be recognisable, based on our identity and reputation. Our brand is inextricably linked to this. It distinguishes us from similar products and services provided by other organisations.

Where can you find our brand?

The TNO brand can be found on the products and services which we market at our own expense and risk, for example, in the form of a TNO report or a European research project. There is also the special 'Innovated with TNO' label . This is specifically intended for external parties bringing unique innovations to the market, and which incorporate TNO knowledge and technology.

Guarantee of independent research

The TNO brand reflects our good name and is recognised around the world as a guarantee of independent research. For example, the protection applies to products and services in the European Union, the United States, the BES islands (Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba), Curaçao, Aruba, St. Maarten, Brazil, Chile, Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia and Qatar.
