Innovation for life

Opportunities for high-tech potentials

Are you wondering to take the next step and start your career? Ever thought about a future in The Netherlands?

TNO is an independent research & development organisation in The Netherlands that functions as the bridge between the world of academia and the business realm. We translate research findings into straightforward applications and solutions to solve the problems the world will encounter the day after tomorrow.

For example, TNO multidisciplinary teams make health care better and more affordable by developing health monitoring devices, next generation of imaging and enabling personalised medicine and food via 3D printing. Also, TNO teams work actively on lowering the CO2 content in our air by developing safe energy storage methods for renewable energy and reinventing the way the chemical industry make their products.

We take the time to think creatively and deeply about issues, and then once a project is running, we start looking for more tools, models and recommendations that Dutch and foreign companies and organisations will benefit from in the future. TNO has around 3,300 employees working within nine domains for a wide range of clients, such as government agencies, the SME sector, civil society organisations, larger companies and service providers.
