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.

The Trainee Programme starts every September and lasts two years in total (3 x 8 months). A trainee position is linked to one of TNO’s ten focus area’s and thus to a specific research group. Every spot has its own responsibilities and challenges. During the programme you work with local and international colleagues.
In total there are 3 jobs to be done meaning you will get to know different areas of expertise within TNO and different roles. Together with the research group you choose your assignment and separately you work with other trainees on a unit transcending job. After the Trainee Programme you are ready for your career at TNO.
Apart from sharing and applying knowledge, your own growth is an important part of our trainee programme. There is a lot of space to either delve deeper or acquire breadth while being supported by our Manager Trainees, former trainees and of course your mentor within the units.
