Geological Survey of the Netherlands

The government has assigned various tasks to TNO in respect of information on the Dutch subsurface. TNO acts (internationally) as the Geological Survey of the Netherlands and we manage data and information supplied by mining companies to the Minister of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation.

This information is needed to make comprehensive decisions concerning the organisation of the space above and below ground.
