work at NIOO

You'll find more than 250 people at the NIOO, from almost 30 nationalities. Researchers, analysts, supporting staff, and of course also many students.


NIOO disseminates its research results via many hundreds of scientific publications. Next to that, we also try to 'translate' our knowledge to enhance application.


The NIOO institute works from a sustainable research building with a lot of eco-technology. Experimental green roof to a 'golden' toilet: learn from nature!
