Cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of death in the Netherlands and other Western countries. The most common cardiovascular diseases are coronary heart disease (CHZ). Lifestyle plays an important role in the development of CHZ
Cross-Industry Predictive Maintenance Optimization Platform (CIMPLO)
Traditional maintenance concepts rely on a ‘fixed interval approach”, which takes into account a significant safety margin. As a consequence maintenance is almost always taking place too early or too late, which makes it probably one of the most inefficient industrial activities and most critical at the same time.
Data for zero-defect manufacturing
For the past decades, the use of feedback and feedforward control systems has been essential in every automated process stage in advanced production systems for fulfilling tight and rigid product specifications at each stage.
Data Logistics for Logistics Data
Data Logistics for Logistics Data is an innovation project of TNO together with the UvA that fits in with the ambitions of the Top Sector Logistics and Commit2Data.
Data-driven shared decision making on cancer treatment
When someone is first diagnosed with cancer, patient and doctor jointly need to decide which treatment to opt for from the range of possible treatments. Decision tools have been developed to support this diﬃcult process, but, unfortunately, these tend to be generic and population-based, focus exclusively on long-term survival and lack person- alised explanations.
DataRel - Big Data for Resilient Logistics
The Netherlands is the European leader in the field of transport, logistics and supply chain. However, the logistics sector is currently undergoing radical changes.
Deep Learning to extract biomarkers
Psychological disorders have a major impact on people's lives. Rapid recovery depends on proper diagnosis and treatment. The problem is, however, that there are no objective criteria to determine exactly which psychiatric condition a patient has and which treatment is best for him or her.
Designing Rhythms for Social Resilience
In this research, we contribute to the humanities by an analysis of how people process their life experiences within cities, and also by examining how these experiences are increasingly being documented within urban data centers.
DiaGame: Serious and personalized game for self-management of diabetes
Self-care is now seen as the primary approach to diabetes. However, this is a complex task, with many facets, in which training and education are crucial. However, not everyone has a dry explanation. Gamification has the great advantage that habits can change in a fun and attractive way.
Dynamic Data Analytics through automatically Constructed Machine Learning Pipelines
In the 'Dynamic Data Analytics through automatically Constructed Machine Learning Pipelines' project the data dynamics of two focus projects are investigated.

EDIC: Exceptional and Deep Intelligent Coach
Our increased life expectancy goes hand in hand with an increase in the number of life years in which we have a chronic condition, such as diabetes, lung disease or cardiovascular disease. Such chronic conditions cannot be cured, but the chosen lifestyle does have a major impact on the course of the condition, quality of life and the extent to which co-morbidities occur.
Enabling peer-to-peer energy trading by leveraging prosumer analytics
More than 30% of the electricity generated in the OECD countries is consumed in homes. Therefore, the involvement of small consumers is important for obtaining a sustainable energy system.
Energy saving in greenhouse crop production by flexible management
The goal of this project is to develop greenhouse climate management support that substantially saves on gas, by employing data streams on weather and on the energy grid. This type of management will at the same time reduce the peak loads on the electricity grid, thereby helping the transition to cleaner energy.
EPI - Enabling Personalized Interventions
In this project a platform for the safe and reliable sharing of large heterogeneous data sources and data analysis techniques will be developed. The aim is to determine the best medical and lifestyle interventions given the relevant personal health situation of users of this platform.
Genetic data in daily medical practice
Individuals react differently to drugs. In some people a drug is broken down too quickly, making it ineffective, in others it is broken down too slowly, which can lead to (serious) side effects. These differences are largely due to variations in the hereditary material, the DNA.
Geometric Algorithms for the Analysis and Visualization of Heterogeneous Spatio-temporal Data.
Movements of vehicles, people and animals are increasingly being measured and stored, thanks to technologies such as GPS. An important example of this is digital tracks of the routes taken by cars. Not only the route points, but also the times of measurements are stored, so that speed along the tracks can be determined everywhere.
Renewable energy such as sun and wind contributes to a sustainable world. Because of their partly controllable variation in mostly decentralised energy generation, balancing the electricity network is becoming increasingly difficult.
Information Value provider (SDF2.0)
The objective of this TKI project is to create value based on shared information for Smart Dairy Farming by TNO (Creating Shared Information Value for Smart Dairy Farming), which is called Smart Dairy Farming 2.0, SDF 2.0, within the project "knowledge questions infrastructure".
Kids first, towards a pedagogical sport climate
Youth sports contribute to a number of positive aspects such as self-confidence. Unfortunately, bullying or intimidation also occurs at sports clubs. In order to increase the value of youth sports and to reduce problem behaviour, a pedagogical climate must be created.

Perfect Fit: Targeting key risk factors for cardiovascular disease in at-risk individuals using a personalized and adaptive approach
It has long been known that smoking and insufficient exercise are important risk factors for developing cardiovascular diseases. Nevertheless, it is difficult to stop smoking or to start exercising, even for people who do want to do so. One reason for this is that support from a healthcare provider is not always available when it is most needed.
PIE=M stands for Physicians Implement Exercise is Medicine (doctors introduce movement as a medicine).
Power4FitFoot - Datdriven personalized self-management
Less sick people and better care, that's our goal. Health care is one of the largest items of expenditure, with around EUR 75 billion per year. What if you can drastically reduce that amount by warning people in advance of a possible illness, so that they can change their behaviour in time, or get the right treatment in time?
Protection of electricity networks through simulation

Snowdrop: Big Data for the joint management of medication-related falls for senior citizens
In older persons, falls are the leading cause of injuries. Medications are a major risk factor for falls. Because we lack tools to assess individualized risks, general practitioners (GPs) struggle with fall-related medication management for seniors, and senior patients are not properly equipped to engage in the joint management of their medications.
SQIREL-Graphs focuses on the development of Big Data systems for processing questions about graphs that are constantly changing, such as social networks and Web collections (which refer to each other with links).
STRAP: Self TRAcking for Prevention and diagnosis of heart disease
