Brainport Eindhoven, now and in the future

Technological solutions for the world of tomorrow

Thanks to our unique high-tech competences and the powerful cooperation between industry, educational and knowledge institutions and governments, Brainport Eindhoven has grown into an economic core region. A region where unemployment is lower than average. Where more jobs are created every day than average.  Where innovative technologies are developed that shape tomorrow's society. And where cooperation remains the recipe for staying strong in the future. Working together ambitiously to build a future-proof region.

To strengthen our global technological leadership and economic strength, targeted investments in key technologies such as micro and nano electronics, AI, integrated photonics, Advanced Manufacturing and markets such as energy, health, mobility and nutrition are essential. This way, we realise innovations that provide answers to social issues of today and tomorrow.

How do we do it?

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.


From cars that charge themselves with solar energy to self-driving vehicles that take all the work off your hands; mobility plays a daily role in our society.


From the most advanced solar panels on our roofs to fully hybrid cars; to preserve the world, we need to use energy in a sustainable way.


From medical devices that early trace and detect diseases, to care robots that fill the shortage of qualified carers, new care technologies are needed for people to live healthy and long.


Twenty years from now, we will still have plenty to eat and drink. The enormous demand has forced us to think differently.

These are our themes
  • Mobility
  • Energy
  • Health
  • Food


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.


The breeding ground for life-changing technologies

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.

Augmented & Virtual Reality

Optimize production processes or to virtually mimic projects with a social impact.

Wat is Fotonica?

Integrated Photonics

A technology that detects, generates, transports and processes light

Smart Cities

Information technology and the Internet make it possible to manage and control homes and entire cities.


This technology ensures that machines are able to do more and more by means of smart programming, which can significantly improve our lives.

Additive Manufacturing

A technique in which a three-dimensional object is constructed from several layers of printed material on the basis of a digital design.

Artificial Intelligence

This technology allows computers to make their own decisions or perform tasks on the basis of data.

All technologies
  • Augmented & Virtual Reality
  • Integrated Photonics
  • Smart Cities
  • Robotics
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Artificial Intelligence


Internationally award-winning products from the Brainport region

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.


Always the strongest passwords


An electric family car that gets its energy directly from the sun through solar panels.


A thin-film solar where the layer of active material is much thinner than normal. This saves valuable materials and can be made flexible.

Carin LifeSense Group

Smart underwear that provides solutions for women who lose urine, for example after childbirth.

Concept car SEKISUI

Replacing metal in a car with high-performance plastics makes the vehicle considerably lighter, a crucial step in actually reducing CO2 emissions in the car industry.

Ebusco 3.0

Ebusco has reached a milestone in the further development of emission-free driving in public transport.

Blue Jay

The TU/e student team wants to show that drones can be used for social problems.

MRI Scan Experience

Knowing what to expect for an MRI scan can have a positive impact on the patient experience.



Cooperation is the driver of innovation and success

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.


From master mind to manufacturer

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.
