When an ICT dispute has become a judicial lawsuit it is necessary to bring in an expert report that provides insight into the case. As a renowned and independent research institute TNO provides expert reports on ICT-related disputes and litigation. A TNO expert report turns a complex technical case into a clear and understandable picture for all involved (process) parties, prosecutors and judges.
For complex technical issues, when an expert opinion from an independent party is requested, and in-depth knowledge of the ICT domain is required for the assessment, a TNO report can be decisive. TNO distinguishes the following situations:
The accuracy of the questions that are answered in the report is crucial for the ultimate usefulness and usability of TNO's technical analysis of the issue. For this reason, this is the first step of the different phases of the study:
The independent status is a fundamental value for TNO as a research institute. The result is that reports and other statements by TNO have the advantage of the highest level of reliability, and are recognized particularly credible in disputes and litigation.
TNO is a leading research with the aim to create impact and value to business and government. TNO researchers are leading in varying knowledge areas and can be deployed where needed on their own technical domain. All required knowledge is available under one roof. The result of the research is included in a TNO report that can be brought forward during a legal procedure. If required, TNO experts can also explain their findings in court and answer questions of the court or the other party concerning the report or the research.
