TO2: solutions for tomorrow as well as today

Published: 8 November 2022

We’re living in the midst of many complex social issues. From economic uncertainty and historical developments in the energy market to global warming, from a health crisis to sustainability. The applied research organisations that form part of TO2 provide practical results for solving problems both for tomorrow as well as today.

This includes the creation of innovative technologies that respond to these challenges and which are important for our future jobs and incomes. These TO2 institutes are the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN), Deltares, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scienctific Research (TNO), Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and the Royal
Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR).

This Impact Report shows concrete solutions found by TO2 institutes with their applied research. They have been categorised in the research groups ‘energy transition and sustainability’, ‘agriculture, water and food’, ‘health and care’, ‘safety’ and ‘key technologies’. The results are invaluable to our society and are really worthwhile to be widely shared. In this way, civil society organisations, government authorities and companies can apply the knowledge.
The report reflects on 26 different examples.
