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.
On TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
Do you want to do ground-breaking work in multidisciplinary projects, seek out new knowledge? Do you want to help customers with innovative, practical and smart solutions? Are you ambitious and energetic, a thinker and a doer?
As a starter at TNO you have many options. You can specialise or you can develop in a broader sense. You could become a consultant or top researcher. Or maybe you see yourself as an R&D engineer or leading a project. TNO offers you fantastic prospects in which you have a great deal of freedom and responsibility in shaping your career. From the moment you join us, your career development is in the spotlight, in part through the special Talent Development Programme or the traineeship. As a new colleague you get an extensive introduction and education programme so that you can feel quickly at home at TNO and get off to a flying start.
From future vision to technological innovation, from societal trends to practical embedding, the translation of customer need to business opportunities, the development and maintenance of strategic partnerships. TNO gives you freedom and challenge within different societal themes. We are looking for professionals able to connect with customers and colleagues, to look for new markets and in pursuit of a career.
TNO is a innovation and knowledge organisation without parallel. This means that we also attach great value to your personal and professional development. From the moment you join us, your career development is in the spotlight and as a new colleague you get an extensive introduction programme. An important part of this is training in self-management so that you can steer your career path in a specific direction, such as applied technology, commerce, consultancy, project or line management or corporate support.
All new employees at TNO, national and international, participate in the TNO onboarding programme from their very first day. To start with, you get a mentor and you go for an informal lunch with the management. Within two months, you will participate in Hello@TNO together with other new employees. This is a social networking event in which you can experience TNO and its people throughout the organisation. At the moment there is a pilot with an onboarding app to introduce new colleagues to us immediately after signing the contract. In the app you will be welcomed by the CEO and introduced in an interactive way to who we are, what we do and the preparation for your first day. The onboarding programme will facilitate your onboarding at TNO so that you can get started effectively and efficiently!
