King Willem-Alexander opens ELEO battery production plant in Helmond
- Development of battery technology and applications
Our region is home to several major high-tech companies, such as Philips, ASML, VDL, Thermo Fisher and NXP. They, and many other companies and suppliers, are responsible for innovative and prestigious products and systems for a number of markets. What makes these ’Brainport companies' so successful? The common denominator: Systems Engineering - a multidisciplinary approach and a systematic way of working.
Systems Engineering is not a technology, but rather a way of thinking: a mindset and approach in which both the technical and the user requirements are kept in mind when developing a product. In other words, the design of applications is increasingly tailored to and developed with society and the user.
Distributing knowledge about Systems Engineering is important to laying a strong foundation for this development, because Systems Engineering is only going to become more important in the coming years. That's why attracting, retaining and evolving systems engineers is high on the agenda of Brainportregio and why several companies and knowledge institutes are joining forces. The consumer will be increasingly affected by this development in the future.
