We focus on ten societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.

TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
As soon as you visit this website, you allow TNO to collect personal data about you, both directly (via the personal data provided by you at our request) and indirectly (such as by accepting cookies when visiting the website). It is of the upmost importance to TNO that the personal data you provide are treated and safeguarded with the greatest possible care.
TNO will therefore only use these personal data in accordance with the purposes described in this privacy statement and the other specified methods of data processing.
The party responsible for the data processing is the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO, located at Anna van Buerenplein 1 in The Hague.
All data entered by you and data provided by you in the accompanying appendices//attachments.
TNO does not collect or process sensitive information such as data revealing your racial or ethnic background, political, religious or philosophical beliefs, possible trade union membership, health or sex life.
TNO uses your personal data to facilitate a responsible, effective and efficient recruitment and selection process. The principle for processing these data lies in the legitimate interest of TNO in recruiting and selecting potential candidates for job vacancies. In addition, you have a legitimate interest as a potential candidate in making your personal data available to TNO by means of a CV when making a job application. Your interests in protecting the personal data you make available to TNO are sufficiently safeguarded as TNO has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the data against any form of unlawful processing, such as loss, theft, misuse, unauthorised access, undesired disclosure, improper amendment or distribution.
TNO collects and processes personal data from both open applications and applications for existing job vacancies. TNO will only process personal data for recruitment purposes. TNO’s recruitment purposes are: comparing the applicant’s data with current vacancies, communicating recruitment and selection procedures, contacting applicants to plan interviews, testing applicants and informing applicants of other relevant vacancies. ‘Processing’ means collecting, registering, storing, organising, transferring, adapting, modifying, retrieving, consulting, using, limiting, disclosing (via transmission, dissemination or another method), comparing, blocking, destroying and deleting recruitment information.
TNO retains the data of applicants during the recruitment and selection procedure. Following the end of the recruitment and selection procedure, TNO retains the data of applicants for one year. TNO retains personal data if there is a ‘business need’ to retain these data, e.g. retaining an applicant’s CV in case a suitable vacancy arises. The legislation on data retention will always be consulted and complied with. One month prior to the end of an applicant’s data retention period, a request will be sent to extend the data retention period by one year. If the applicant does not consent to this, the data will be completely removed from TNO’s system. In the event that an applicant is hired by TNO, the part of the data required for the implementation of the employment contract will be included within the HR administration.
You can view, correct, update or change your profile data or CV at any time. All you need to do is log into your TNO account and edit or delete the data as you wish, including the CV.
Unless the exceptions mentioned below apply, TNO will not make your data available to third parties under any circumstances, nor will your data be sold.
In order to optimally protect your personal data against unauthorised access or use, TNO always uses the latest security technology.
Access to your data is limited to TNO personnel who are involved in TNO’s recruitment activities. TNO personnel are obliged to respect the privacy of applicants who visit the TNO website and to keep the data of applicants confidential.
You too have an important part to play in the secure storage and processing of your personal data. You must keep your password confidential at all times and follow the correct procedure for logging in or out of the TNO job site.
TNO has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO fulfils an independent supervisory role within TNO in regard to the manner in which TNO handles personal data. For questions about this privacy statement, complaints or the exercising of your privacy rights, please contact the DPO of TNO. More information about the DPO can be found in TNO’s general privacy statement at tno.nl.
