We focus on five social themes.
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.
On 19 November the Ahoy in Rotterdam was the venue for the launch of AEOLUS at the TNO stand during the NIDV symposium. AEOLUS is an innovation platform of the Royal Netherlands Air Force Centre for Man and Aviation and TNO in Soesterberg. It studies how people perform in extreme conditions.
As the first signatories to Aeolus, Karla Peijs, NIDV chair, commodore Mario Verbeek, Director of Materials Maintenance CLSK, and vice-admiral (retired) Wim Nagtegaal, COO of the TNO Executive Board, ratified the launch.
The Royal Netherlands Air Force Centre for Man and Aviation and TNO aim to use Aeolus to accelerate the innovation cycle for human performance in extreme conditions in the aerospace field.
Since TNO and CML are looking to collaborate with other parties through Aeolus, including small start-ups, there could have been no better conceivable stage for the launch of Aeolus than the NIDV symposium.
As an independent entity with two strong founding partners (Royal Netherlands Air Force and TNO), Aeolus acts as a catalyst and facilitator and bring together science, businesses and end users on the campus in Soesterberg (NL). Programs are based on scientific and applied research and we take everything a human operator needs for optimum performance in real and virtual environments as the starting point. Aeolus strives to take human factors research to the next level.
