New crop of innovative student teams at the TU/e Contest
Thanks to our unique high-tech expertise and the close cooperation between industry, educational and knowledge institutes and public authorities, Brainport Eindhoven has developed into an economic core region. A region with a lower than average unemployment rate. Where more jobs are created on a daily basis than average. Where innovative technologies are being developed that create tomorrow’s society. Where cooperation is key to ensure our region remains strong in the future. Jointly, and ambitiously, building a region that is ready to face the future.
To enhance our economic strength and global leadership position in technology, it is key that we continue to invest in key technologies, such as micro and nano electronics, AI, integrated photonics and Advanced Manufacturing, and in the energy, healthcare, mobility and food sector. To realize innovations that address the social issues of today and tomorrow.
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.
To be able to make a significant contribution to the solutions for the world’s issues of today and tomorrow, it is essential that Brainport is at the forefront in terms of key technologies. And what’s more important, we are better than anyone in connecting high-tech complex systems and in integrating various key technologies. The region’s strength lies in connecting systems and in using technological knowledge to develop future-proof business models.
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.
