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.

When you join TNO as a junior scientist, you are automatically part of the Talent Development Programme. A great opportunity to further develop yourself as a person and as a professional. We also take you into the world of TNO and you discover what working as a junior researcher with us entails. The programme starts after you join and lasts for two years.
Just to clear up any confusion: this talent programme is not a trainee programme. The Talent Development Programme (TDP) is intended for all new colleagues who start a job at TNO. During the programme, you will (usually) continue to work in the job for which you applied. This means that the TDP is not a vacancy for which you can apply but is part and parcel of every starter vacancy.
Think of it as a starter's package for working at TNO. Maybe you have little or even no work experience. In that case, you may have to contend with quite a lot. During the programme we guide you along the way. A lot of attention is geared to the development of competencies that are useful in your job as a junior researcher.
If you’re curious about those who have preceded you, read the stories of other TNO employees.
Working at TNO is like a wonderful journey: an enrichment of your life. In terms of content but also on a personal level. Conversely, we like to challenge you to add something to TNO as well, to make our contribution to the world of tomorrow even greater.
