TNO PhD Community

The TNO PhD community is an initiative for PhD researchers working in projects affiliated with TNO. Founded in 2020, we aim to help TNO PhD researchers develop, network and create an impact during their time as a PhD researcher at TNO.

The PhD Community is a developing initiative for all PhD candidates conducting research connected with TNO. All events organised by the TNO PhD Community are run for and by PhD students associated with TNO. Founded in 2020, we aim to act as a hub for PhD candidates, creating events and opportunities for members.

All PhD students who have a connection to TNO can join the TNO PhD Community.

Why have we started the TNO PhD Community?

For PhD candidates conducting research at TNO, finding their way through the TNO environment can be both exciting and challenging. To facilitate these journeys, the TNO Science Academy and Corporate Science Office set up the TNO PhD Community. As a community, we have three main goals.


As a community, we aim to provide opportunities for the professional growth of PhD researchers. As there is no pre-established pathway for doing a PhD at TNO, we look to provide opportunities for PhD students who want to develop their professional skills.


We aim to facilitate communication between TNO PhD researchers, and with the broader TNO community, to stimulate, amongst other things, knowledge sharing and collaboration.


We want to strengthen the impact that research done by TNO PhD researchers can have, both within TNO and the university.
