Being a Partner

SRPs offer the opportunity to participate in long-term strategic research that would not be carried out by individual companies alone. Together with TNO and other industry partners, you will share skills, resources and risks. Participation in an SRP allows you to accelerate your R&D activities and bring innovations to market that have major economic and societal impact.

From all participants TNO expects an active contribution to the program, in terms of discussions on the research content and guidance of the annual program. TNO in principle requests a minimum of three years financial commitment from the industrial participants. Academic partners that join as a knowledge partner are anticipated to actively deliver added value to the scientific content of the program. Contract details will be discussed per participant.

Benefits

SRPs offer the opportunity to participate in long-term strategic research that would not be carried out by individual companies alone.

Costs

Each industrial participant pays an annual participation fee to TNO. The fee will mainly depend on the program lines in which is participated and will be formalized via individual contracts. Special arrangements are available for the participation by Knowledge Partners and SME’s.
The participation fees are leveraged by TNO’s Research Cooperation Funds. At any time, SRP’s are open for new participants to join.
Participants joining after a program line has begun will pay an entrance fee that permits access to results and IP obtained earlier in (the specific program line of) the SRP.
