Fit for the future

The corona crisis shows even more clearly that in this region we are able to innovate and produce faster and close to home in co-creation. Technology helps us to identify faster, diagnose better and treat smarter. In Brainport Eindhoven we are working together to use technological developments and innovations to get and stay fit.

Brainport is well-positioned to develop and market smart technology solutions to improve health, vitality and care and to cause the healthcare sector to undergo a much-needed transition. This requires focus. That is why the coming years, Brainport Eindhoven is mainly concentrating on the following three themes:

  • Enhancing the ecosystem of companies that develop medical technology, e.g. for healing purposes and to stimulate recovery
  • To future proof the care chain, e.g. by means of digital care and services
  • Developing preventive solutions: for prevention of health complaints instead of curing them

The coming years 

A large number of companies and organizations in Brainport Eindhoven is working on medical technologies. The MedTech sector consists of a valuable mix of OEMS, suppliers, SMEs and scale- and startups that are closely cooperating with each other and with knowledge and educational institutes, such as the Eindhoven University of Technology and TNO. They are focusing, among others, on sensors for monitoring and diagnosis, medical imaging, robotics and regenerative medicine. The coming years, Brainport Development will focus on enhancing a Brainport MedTech cluster by e.g. connecting parties and by contributing to international marketing.

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.
