TNO Ageing is the central point for ageing and elderly within TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research) Ageing of the population is one the biggest problems the Netherlands and many other countries will have to face in the decades to come. Concomitant changes in population distribution have far-reaching societal, economic and health care consequences. However, ageing does not only present a threat but also a challenge for finding problem-oriented solutions.

The primary objective is to promote the ability of elderly people to live and function independently.
