Brainport Eindhoven has great ambitions in terms of mobility. The ultimate goal: zero emissions, traffic jams and deaths. This requires not only smart technology solutions, but a transition of a complete infrastructure and industry. There is a widespread need for sustainable, emission-free, smart and safe technological mobility solutions: electrically powered vehicles and associated infrastructure, hydrogen as energy carrier and smart, autonomous and connected vehicles and digital networks and systems. With its many, closely cooperating, innovative companies, IT businesses and knowledge and educational institutes that focus on mobility, Brainport holds an excellent position. Add the Automotive Campus and a government that is supporting mobility pilots in public spaces or is acting as launching customer, and the world is at our feet.
In October we will put the 'pioneers in mobility' on stage. Lovers of mobility in the broadest sense of the word can indulge themselves with interviews, stories, events, podcasts and videos in which these pioneers play the leading role. Follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to stay informed.
