To implement the strategic themes Sustainable aviation, Competitive aerospace and Safe and secure society, NLR works with a programme-based approach. There are nine programmes, all of which have been meticulously developed on the basis of Dutch public and private stakeholder roadmaps and visions. Within these nine NLR programmes, the necessary knowledge is further developed in projects. The objectives of the programmes, which are coordinated with our stakeholders, give focus to the knowledge projects to be undertaken. We concentrate on the goals that will truly have an impact in the forthcoming period, that help realise NLR’s strategy and that our employees are eager to commit to.
