Lead Scientists

Bij TNO staan onderzoek en innovatie centraal. Onze vooraanstaande wetenschappers spelen daarom een cruciale rol in onze organisatie. Hieronder geven we een overzicht van TNO's
- Professoren en hoogleraren toegepast onderzoek, die een deeltijdbaan hebben bij een universiteit of hogeschool in het kader van hun TNO-functie
- Principal Scientist als TNO's erkende leiders in hun vakgebied

Deze wetenschappers geven richting aan ons onderzoek, ontwikkelen de onderzoekstalenten in onze organisatie, bouwen strategische samenwerkingen op en zijn vaak ‘het gezicht van TNO’ bij belangrijke evenementen en bestuursorganen.
