Information and Communication Technology: our ICT innovations

ICT offers opportunities for solving societal challenges and enables innovation and economic growth. At the same time, the rapid digital transformation in society calls for practical ICT innovations. To meet these needs, we help our clients achieve complex digital transformations with knowledge of technology, policy and business models.

Shaped by 10 innovation challenges

At the core of our roadmap are the 10 innovation challenges for the Netherlands, as identified by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. ICT plays an important role in all these challenges, both as a facilitator and an accelerator. It is precisely the combination of ICT technologies that ensures innovation. Fast and open infrastructures, combined with data sharing and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven analytics, developed and applied in a responsible and secure manner, require an approach that’s capable of dealing with this complexity. These are the topics addressed in the IT unit and that we work on together with our partners and stakeholders. We develop ICT technology that respects public values and fundamental rights, creates a global level playing field, and ensures national security.

ICT innovations in our daily lives

You can find ICT innovations everywhere. For example, they help increase road safety and solve traffic congestion problems. ICT systems can exchange data quickly and reliably, making self-driving cars possible. There is also the trend of more and more people collecting personal data about their health, using smart sensors and software systems.

The Information & Communication Technology unit works with and for clients in a wide range of fields, such as telecommunications, banking, government, defence and security, industry, energy, construction, healthcare, mobility, and logistics. In our search for innovations, we seek collaboration with knowledge partners and other TNO units.

Are you also struggling with the complex challenge of digitalisation? Or can you help us with our work? Please feel free to contact us.
