Members of our team come from sound backgrounds in economics, econometrics and technical fields. Many have PhD degrees and/or large experience gained in various research institutions. We can develop new solutions to meet client needs or apply and adjust existing tools. This ambitious and pro-active team is not afraid of challenging work in order to answer a research question.

Our team is a part of the large research organization, the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). We have access to the expertise of over 2600 professionals in a large variety of domains such as energy technologies, health and mobility. For answering specific questions or validate assumptions and findings, it is of great value to have in-depth technical knowledge at our fingertips.

Our mission

The mission of our team is:

  1. To use state-of-the-art modelling methods to support the decision-making process and promote sustainability. We want to support policy-makers and organizations with data-driven answers that can help the transition to a more sustainable economy.
  2. To improve modelling practices by making it more transparent, robust and open for collaboration. We apply a new transparent approach of modelling in the EM-PLUS modelling framework and hope it will become a new standard in the modelling community.
