As an SME entrepreneur, innovative products, services or operations constantly occupy your mind. But where do you begin? And who can you turn to if you want to realise this innovative product or service? To answer these and many other questions relating to innovation, you can do no better than come to TNO.
Innovation is the way to boost your profitability and market position. TNO can help you innovate, whether alone or together with other companies. For instance, by co-developing a new product, modernising your production process or gaining insight into new technological possibilities. We can help you with the technology, the whole innovation process or bring together the right partners in the chain. TNO makes difficult innovation programmes transparent so your plans can become reality.
Innovating together pays off!
Whether you are an individual entrepreneur or a member of an industry association or affiliated to a chain, TNO helps you realise your innovation goal with an initial orientation, knowledge development, knowledge transfer or knowledge application.
