Brainport Eindhoven. Home of Pioneers.

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.

Program

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, TwitterInstagram and Facebook to stay informed.

Meet the green & smart mobility students of Brainport Eindhoven

Luuk Roozen (TU/e)

"I also like that companies are so close. What I've noticed over the past year at Solar is how important it is that you can switch quickly with companies, and that's easiest if you can just pass by."

Kjell Revenberg (TU/e)

"Now that I'm sitting here, I can see how much I've developed and how much I've learned."

Laura van Erp (TU/e)

“I would like to start my own company. I also think a scale-up or start-up fits in very well with that. That I can make my own decisions. I like that freedom.”

Tycho Smokers (TU/e)

"I also think it is important to contribute something useful to society. I would like to help make a sustainable future possible."

Rainier Heijne (TU/e)

"You can roll right into the business world here, because you've actually been in contact with the business world a lot. I think that is unique."

Atharva Kale (TU/e)

"Even though India is a heavy tech industry, it’s not as innovative as Brainport Eindhoven is. Here we are so focused on the next step."

Luc Siecker (TU/e)

"I have learned more in this time with the team than I did in school, in terms of social skills and practical experience."

Stijn van Deudekom (TU/e)

"The link from your studies to your career is guided quite well. If you want, you could get to know a lot of companies during your studies."

Daniel Riechmann Mendez (TU/e)

“It’s wanting to have a positive impact on the world. It’s cliche, but it’s wanting to do so now. In this regard, I think I can also speak for all my team members.”

Lotte van Dasler (TU/e)

"If you believe in it and are driven, basically anything is possible."

The coming years

The coming years, Brainport Eindhoven continues to invest heavily in enhancing the regional mobility and automotive sector. By enhancing automotive companies and expertise. And by utilizing the region as living lab to test mobility solutions and innovative transport concepts as a stepping stone towards the rest of the world. In addition, technologies such as Artificial Intelligence are of uttermost importance to increase road safety and to set up a more efficient charging infrastructure for electrical vehicles. Brainport Eindhoven is heavily investing in AI for the mobility and automotive sector the coming years. Furthermore, the International Connected and Automated Driving Institute (ICADI) is currently defining one standard for the necessary data exchange enabling Connected Automated Driving.
In terms of reduction of emissions and innovations with respect to electrical driving, Brainport is focusing on further developing batteries via the Battery Competence Centre, and on hydrogen as energy carrier for vehicles and the logistics sector.
