70 years of Defence Research

11 Jul 2017

This year, we are looking back at 70-year partnership between the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and TNO. It was back in 1947 that Defence Research was structurally handed over to TNO. During this time, this partnership has realized many wonderful research results and applications for the MoD.

To celebrate this success, various activities will be organised in the Fall. A special logo has been developed to mark these occasions. The logo, and in particular the dynamic zero, stands symbol for the powerful light that shines on the knowledge landscape this long-term cooperation brings along.

In November, we will take a moment to reflect on 70 years defence research with a special symposium. Here, we will show the benefits of long term partnership between TNO and the MoD. This will take place in the historic setting of the National Military Museum in Soesterberg.

Following, in December, we will pay attention to 70 years defence research at Innovation in Defence. Successes from the past and present will be celebrated and a perspective on the future presented. The development of our research and insights in future progress will have a central place during this event.
