This is our time
This is the time for us to find innovative solutions that will make an impact. The time to lead the world in safety and security, make our lives healthier, and take sustainability to the next level.
Time for a sustainable, safe, healthy, and digital society
This is the time to work together for a better future. By combining the power of science and entrepreneurship. For society, the public sector, and entrepreneurs. Today and tomorrow. #Thisisourtime.
This is the time to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society. We’re committed to a stable and accessible energy system and a circular economy. Where we use every suitable surface for solar and wind energy; on land and offshore. And where we make plastic from air and waste gases.
Safe and secure society
This is the time to lead the world in safety and security. We protect what we hold dear and ensure that we can live together in freedom and safety. We have a leading position in the military domain and use scientific knowledge and technology to improve physical and digital security.
This is the time to make our lives healthier. We contribute to a healthy, vital, and productive population, and aim to halve lifestyle-related diseases by 2030.
This is the time of unprecedented digital opportunities (including AI and social XR). We work on technologies to connect networks and use them flexibly, and to take social interactions to the next level. Always with the ambition to use data and systems responsibly.
This is the time of big challenges and innovative solutions. We combine the powers of science and entrepreneurship, and ensure they work together for a better tomorrow. This is the time for solutions that really create the future! Take a look at our vacancies and become a time setter to make innovations with impact.

Offshore wind under pressure
Offshore wind energy is growing enormously, but this growth comes with challenges. To maximize the value of large volumes of wind energy in the future energy system, we need to ensure feasible business cases for developers.
SEWGS: revolutionary CO2-reduction technology
In order to make existing industrial production processes cleaner, TNO has developed a technology that very efficiently captures CO2 while simultaneously producing hydrogen.
Organ on a chip
With the need for better predictive models for pre-clinical testing and the development of more advanced technologies to keep (human) cells alive, organ-on-a-chip technologies have become increasingly important in the drug development process.
