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!
Heat pumps are an energy efficient electrification technology which are able to replace a large share of fossil fueled industrial process heating. To accelerate the implementation and further development of industrial heat pumps, TNO, together with seven other research institutes have prepared a whitepaper outlining the current status and steps needed to realise the decarbonisation potential of this technology.
Watch the webinar "Heat pumps for decarbonising the industry".
The TNO-vision is to realise 60GW at the Dutch part of the North Sea. That is much more power than is currently used as electric power in the Dutch energy system. How do we make sure that this fits and works?
An important solution is sector coupling and conversion and storage options connected to an offshore energy infrastructure to transport the large amounts of electricity and gas to the users on shore. This webinar will address the vision of implementing large scale offshore wind power, the required innovations and developments to overcome barriers and further reduce cost of energy and address the TNO-innovations in sector coupling to develop a thriving offshore wind sector.

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.

During the webinar “Don’t Waste it!” you will learn which systemic transition is needed to enable the sustainable production and use of circular plastics. You will get the latest insights into how the dark side of today’s plastics can be mitigated, which stakeholders need to act and what technologies are needed.
