Healthy and vital ageing
The healthcare sector is facing major challenges. The demand for prevention, faster application of technology and a different way of organizing things is high. An increasingly older population wants to stay healthy for 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 in which we respond to it with the help of a strong innovation ecosystem with triple helix collaboration and the deployment of our key technologies for solving complex health issues. Technology helps with faster detection, better diagnosis and smarter treatment. In Brainport Eindhoven we are working together to use technological innovations to get and stay healthy.
Furthermore, we, as a region, are working towards future proofing the care chain by combining smart technology solutions focused on health, care and vitality with a well-organized network of companies, organizations and public authorities that have joined forces under the umbrella of Coöperatie Slimmer Leven (Cooperative Smarter Living). The Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC) is another great example of a successful cooperation between care institutions, the industry and knowledge institutes. The e/MTIC is creating a health data platform to ensure the right care is provided at the right place and to enable the improvement of diagnoses and treatments and the further development of innovations.
