What we offer

As every research question is unique, most contracts with our customers are tailor-made. This can make it appear complex to collaborate with TNO. Luckily, for small businesses we have some ready-made products that gives our collaboration a head start. We offer a free day of consulting, an approximate 50 hours of subsidized research, or even a full-blown research programme for which we help you find the right funding! Consult the product flyer to obtain more information. If you can’t find what you want, we can always figure out different ways to fit your particular needs.

Current collaborations

TNO is currently involved in many startup initiatives that can help you by providing shared workspaces, a huge network and expert coaching. Or you can work together with us by licensing TNO technologies or by joining a consortium. Take a look at the graphic to get the full overview!
