TNO is the Netherlands Organization for applied scientific research. Set up by law in 1932, it has been our mission to give the right answers – and to ask the right questions. This is how we work for welfare and prosperity. For the world of today and tomorrow. By combining disciplines and domains, we tackle the most complex questions. On the road to a better life and a brighter future.
We focus on contributing to solutions for 4 societal challenges:
- safe and secure society
- healthy society
- sustainable society
- digital society
We link these four societal challenges to strengthening the earning power of the Dutch economy. We also have and maintain an excellent knowledge base for all our work, especially the national advisory function and statutory duties.
Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence is a major horizontal research topic for TNO. We are working with industrial partners on the application of AI in various vertical domains (logistics, health, manufacturing, etc.). Through our early research programme we try to push the boundaries on explainable and trusted AI.
Dutch AI Coalition
TNO is a leading partner in the Dutch AI Coalition. The aim is to foster the collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders: Collaboration in their own field and with other stakeholders in the ecosystem to achieve the greatest possible impact for the development and application of AI in the Netherlands.
Appl.AI is the early research programme to push the boundaries of AI, building the future of AI. Within a community driven environment (both virtual and physical) we facilitate communication, co-creation, knowledge sharing and dissemination of results between researchers and companies in this area.
Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH4AI)
Through Digital Innovation Hubs TNO is collaborating with users and innovator in the field of AI, with a specific focus on Artifical Intelligence. Through the DIH4AI network we are working together with similar Digital Innovation Hubs elsewhere in Europe.
Through the Southern Netherlands Digital Innovation Hub TNO is partner of the European Test & Experimentation Facility for AI in Manufacturing.
TNO is a partner in the European network of data hubs, through which organizations can experiment with big data and AI. Our focus in data sharing for artificial intelligence. We do this by providing access to Gaia-X and the International Data Spaces-architecture.
