Being a researcher and entrepreneur means playing chess on several boards at the same time
Our world is changing constantly and ever faster. What will we need in ten or twenty years from now? How do we ensure, for example, that there is sufficient work, income, energy and food for everyone, that cities are clean and accessible and that people and regions remain healthy? Those who think about that future think about the world of today and our children. It doesn't get any more important.
That's why we invent and make products that have an impact on the world. We do this at the highest possible level. At the peak of what is technologically possible. Leaders in technology in the field of mobility, health, nutrition and energy find their logical home base here in Brainport Eindhoven. Because here you can discover and pioneer. You have to dare to think in an creative an unconventional way in order to be able to move forward.
We have created an environment characterised by trust. By open innovation. But no matter how good the starting point, success is never guaranteed. The speed and complexity of technological developments is increasing and is turning industries and sectors upside down in a short space of time.
Exploring together how future challenges develop is therefore essential. We encourage our companies and knowledge institutions to come up with creative, innovative solutions. In this way, we can turn societal challenges into new economic opportunities and contribute to a more sustainable, healthier and safer society.
By cleverly anticipating rapid global changes, we stay sharp. We are opting for an adaptive and inclusive course in order to remain future-proof. We can't do that on our own. We invite everyone to work together.
Samen geven we miljoenen uit aan (privaat) onderzoek en ontwikkeling (R&D). Hierdoor ontstaan levens veranderende technologieën. Van fijnstof- en roetreinigers die schone lucht terug de stad inblazen tot auto’s die volledig rijden op zonne-energie; bijna de helft van alle uitvindingen in Nederland, komt uit onze regio.
Through intensive cooperation between technicians, designers and ICT experts, we make our ideas practical, attractive and tangible. From the smallest parts for the Joint Strike Fighter to a completely smart and sustainable home.
In Brainport Eindhoven, technology and networks are clustered on campuses to create economic value and facilitate business development. Each of these campuses brings an ideal mix of companies, talents and knowledge institutions with specific expertise.
Quite a lot of smart brains and golden hands are working within the Brainport region. Thanks to you and all those others, we are the smartest region in the world. Little wonder that the most inspiring stories start here.
