I am as researcher / consultant affiliated to TNO (The Netherlands Organisation for applied scientific research) since 2001. Previously I worked for IVA (Institute for Social Research) of Tilburg University (Netherlands). Here you can find a selection of my Projects, Scientific publications, Publicaties for practice en ‘Other’, like footages.


Both national and international research and consultancy projects are part of my work. Some recent projects are illustrated here.


The onset of Industry 4.0 brought about many changes and numerous novel opportunities. It also created jobs which revolutionised the market and showcased the need for a skilled workforce. Unfortunately, the rapid advancements give little opportunity or time for workers to acquire new skills. In preparation for the arrival of Industry 5.0 the EU-funded BRIDGES 5.0 project will tackle this problem. BRIDGES 5.0 will research the changes and advancements in jobs and skill requirements, and evaluate the efficiency of new training and teaching concepts. Finally, it will collaborate with stakeholders to develop a platform for the efficient training of workers. See


Research project with 9 European partners on the economic and social effects of digital transformation within 6 ‘eco-systems’ (2019-2024). The project has ended. But on the website you can find the publications. See

Workplace innovation; Future of work; Resilient teamwork

At TNO my colleagues and I contribute to the innovation of good jobs and good performance. Organising the work process and the deployment of employees and leaders are at the core of my research and consultancy work. More can be found under About me. Visit further
