We focus on nine societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
This satellite session addresses complexity science applications in the area of security. Due to the interconnectivity trend our society is becoming more vulnerable to the actions of covert organisations (criminal, terrorist or insurgent). This satellite session will discuss how complexity science can effectively help address these security challenges and make the world a safer place.
The contents of the satellite session is clustered in three blocks addressing current issues like understanding and countering immigration flows, challenges in defence operations and cyber security, and how to better understand and counter terrorism and criminality.
The CCS 2016 takes place from 19-22st of September. The Satellite for boosting security takes place on the 21st of September, in a venue yet to be confirmed at the Beurs Van Berlage, Amsterdam.
