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.
On TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
We offer wonderful challenges within our Defence, Safety & Security domain, and we are expanding! Does helping create physical and digital security both in the Netherlands and beyond appeal to you? Do you want to be part of a team that develops knowledge and technology for defence, the police, the fire brigade or industry? With the resulting innovations, you may soon be offering support to the people who work every day to ensure our safety and security.
We are looking hard for recent university technology graduates and (prospective) PhDs with a number of years of work experience to their name and who are interested working at TNO. If you think you would like to take on the challenge presented by TNO assignments out for, among others, the Police, the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Justice and Security, then check the vacancies below.
