Organizing transportation in a more sustainable way without building new roads
The health care industry faces major challenges. The demand for prevention, faster application of technology and a different way of organizing is great. An increasingly aging population wants to stay healthy as long as possible. This is not only the challenge of Brainport Eindhoven but of the entire world.
What makes Brainport unique is the way we answer it using a strong innovation ecosystem with triple helix collaboration and deploying our key technologies to solve complex health issues. Technology helps with faster detection, better diagnosis and smarter treatment. In Brainport Eindhoven, we work together to deploy technological innovations to get and stay healthy.
