We focus on ten 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 TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!

New innovative technologies and approaches are needed to reduce or, in the best case, to stop land subsidence. TISOLS2020 intends to bring together 300+ international experts to share the latest research and insights on natural and anthropogenic land-level lowering.
At TISOLS2020 in the Netherlands, we provide a platform to share our understanding of land subsidence, reliable data, and innovative techniques. Ultimately, we aim to increase the acknowledgement of the land subsidence problem in order to devise targeted strategies and solutions for long-term sustainable living conditions in subsiding areas. This means that at TISOLS we take on the challenge that lies in linking hydrological, geotechnical and geological knowledge to policy and socially acceptable solutions.
TISOLS will consist of a poster and oral programme, including high-level key note contributions. One day of the programme will have a broad scope: this day we will open the doors of TISOLS to Dutch professionals, decision makers and policymakers. We anticipate a lively interaction between the international science community and the local Dutch land subsidence community, leading to exchange of best practices and lessons learned
TISOLS is organized under the auspices of the Unesco IHP Land Subsidence International Initiative. This working group has endeavored to improve and disseminate knowledge on land subsidence since the 1970s, through International Symposia on Land Subsidence, collaborative projects and publications.
This tenth edition in The Netherlands is organized by Utrecht University, TU Delft, Wageningen University & Research, Geological Survey of the Netherlands – part of TNO and Deltares.
Many activities in the subsurface require subsidence estimates. It is no coincidence that this is a key objective of the Geological Survey of the Netherlands. The combination is our strength: knowledge and data; deep and shallow; measuring, understanding and predicting. We make clear where and how much the ground is subsiding, so that policy can be adjusted accordingly. If you like to know more, please feel free to contact us.
