Geological Survey of the Netherlands

The government has assigned various tasks to TNO in respect of information on the Dutch subsurface. TNO acts (internationally) as the Geological Survey of the Netherlands and we manage data and information supplied by mining companies to the Minister of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation.

TNO has the legal task of making information on the Dutch subsurface available to Dutch society so as to enable the sustainable use and management of the subsurface and the mineral resources it contains. This information is needed to make comprehensive decisions concerning the organisation of the space above and below ground.
