Therefore TNO and ECN have clustered their strengths in ECN part of TNO. Because together we can be more ambitious and effective. Together we are better able to make companies and institutions at home and abroad more energy-efficient, innovative and competitive. Together we can really accelerate the sustainability of energy management and strengthen the competitive position of the Netherlands. By joining forces this creates an international knowledge institute in terms of the energy transition. With 700 top researchers and world-class research facilities.Based on eight innovation programmes, ECN part of TNO started in April 2018 as the new centre of excellence for energy issues. The development of the eight programmes is in full swing and the details of these new innovation programmes will be online on the new ECN part of TNO website at TNO.NL from 1 July. Until then, the innovation programmes (now roadmaps) and associated projects will remain online unmodified.
