  • Buildings, Infrastructure & Maritime : 'Robust constructions, sustainable use'
  • The Circular Economy and the Environment: 'Directing and accelerating sustainability'
  • Defence, Safety and Security: ‘We’re putting our knowledge and technology to work for safety and security’
  • Energy: ‘Faster towards a sustainable energy supply'
  • Healthy living: ‘Focussing on participation, not on the disease’
  • Industry: ‘Innovating for employment, welfare and well-being’
  • Information & Communication Technology: 'Interpreting and accelerating digital transformation'
  • Strategic Analysis & Policy: 'Turning complex issues into concrete innovations'
  • Traffic and Transport: 'Helping to create liveable, sustainable cities'

Innovation with purpose is what TNO stands for. We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
