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.
Join Elsevier’s Thought Leader webinar with TNO on 11 April: “New Plays from Old Ideas: How a Back-to-Fundamentals Cross-Disciplinary Approach Supports Successful Exploration Efforts”.
As publisher of scientific journals, Elsevier is at the interface between fundamental science, thought leaders and innovative research organizations, such as TNO. To stimulate knowledge-exchange, Elsevier organizes several Thought Leader webinars in which speakers from different backgrounds connect and share their knowledge with a worldwide audience.
In cooperation with Statoil, OMV and TNO, Elsevier organizes a webinar on 11 April from 16.00 till 17.00 pm. The aims of the webinar are to stimulate knowledge transfer on energy related topics, to enhance understanding and share fundamental processes in daily work and how this benefits market and society. In the oil and gas industry, it is important to look for resources as efficiently and risk-free as possible. As a result, it is clear that organizations have increasingly been looking at cross-pollination between different research fields.
During the webinar TNO researcher Sander Houben will discuss TNO’s thought leadership and research in recent years. His research deals with phases in Earth’s history that were affected by oxygen-depletion (anoxia). During such periods, vast amounts of organic material were deposited, yielding interest for hydrocarbon exploration. Several TNO Joint Industry Projects have laid the basis for fundamental insights in the response of algae and bacteria to such anoxia. These findings make it possible to better predict where hydrocarbons were formed. Interestingly, these insights also bear importance for biotic boundary conditions of biofuel-culturing.
