Company Profile (Holst Centre / TNO)

Are you looking for a reliable development partner, who can help to accelerate your R&D projects in wireless autonomous sensors and flexible electronics ?
As a flexible, independent R&D centre, we can do just that: by testing alternative solutions and materials, by developing and validating new processes, by de-risking potential scale-up scenarios.
We help to close the gap between research and actual business, both in an open innovation setting and in dedicated 1-on-1 research trajectories.
By partnering with Holst Centre, you benefit from the know-how and expertise of our researchers and you gain access to our state-of-the art lab infrastructure. Moreover, we introduce you to an eco-system that covers the entire value chain, including material suppliers, equipment builders all the way to manufacturers of end-products. This allows you to accelerate your time-to-market considerably. By the end of the project, you not only acquire new product concepts, but also the materials, tools and contract manufacturers, ready to produce.
