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!
Air pollution causes millions of premature deaths every year and increases illness amongst the population. Climate change threatens food production, causes sea levels to rise and shifts weather patterns on a global scale. Can satellite data help decreasing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions? This is the central question during this TNO webinar.
September 25th, 4:00 P.M. (Amsterdam/UTC+2) / 10:00 A.M. (Santiago/UTC-4)
During four presentations we will discuss how you can effectively reduce pollution levels and emissions in your country using satellite data jointly with the TNO’s LOTOS-EUROS prediction model, which will allow you to identify emission sources and identify the sectors of society that are responsible for them. This process empowers you to take action against air pollution and climate change.
Timing below is in local Amsterdam time (UTC+2), which is equivalent to 10:00 A.M.-12:00 A.M. Santiago time (UTC-4).

TNO, one of the largest independent research and technology organisations in Europe, will provide this free webinar based on its extensive background in developing satellite instruments, such as the TROPOMI instrument on the Sentinel 5p mission (ESA), and the application of satellite data, e.g. for the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) of the European Union.
We look forward to seeing you at our event. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please note that the language spoken during this webinar is English.
