Healthcare is under pressure, but technology can help solve its challenges
Brainport Eindhoven is a top technology region and a fine place to live, work and play. Pioneering is in our blood. The world's most complex and advanced machines, products and innovations are invented and made here. And that in a region that 'only' consists of 21 municipalities with over 800,000 inhabitants. So small in size, but huge in impact. Innovations from Brainport contribute directly to the biggest challenges of our time and play an important role in, for instance, energy transition, improving healthcare and smart and green mobility.
Being and remaining a nice place to live, work and play. For years, this ambition has underpinned the way we strengthen the Brainport Eindhoven region and develop the regional economy. And with success. Brainport is an above-avarage nice place to live, work and play and one of the main growth engines of the Dutch economy. Home to pioneers and breeding ground for innovations. Not surprisingly, the national government also invests in the developments in the Brainport region.
Our regional resilience, flexibility and future-proofing, we owe to the innovative ecosystem of cooperating high-tech companies, strong manufacturing industry and renowned knowledge and educational institutions for which Philips once laid the foundation. With their innovations, the companies and organisations provide direct answers to the biggest societal challenges facing the world in the fields of energy & climate, health, mobility, safety, food and more. It makes Brainport essential for global societal transitions and to reduce European dependence on other continents for vital products.
Even now, we continue to work closely together from our common agenda and ensure that we continue to answer the questions we are always asking ourselves. Questions like: 'How do we ensure that the region is less vulnerable to international dynamics?', 'How do we remain at the forefront of innovation?', 'And, how do we remain an attractive region for everyone who lives, works, lives or resides here?' In doing so, we have the fact that it is not only income and jobs that lead to happiness in sharp focus. Personal development, health, social contacts, housing satisfaction, safety and environmental quality are just as important.
With this mind-set, we remain the entrepreneurial region we are today, where technology, entrepreneurship and societal challenges come together. Where people and market are not opposites, and cooperation is the norm. With the aim of prosperity and well-being for everyone in our Brainport region.
