Brainport – accelerating high-tech growth

 

Brainport, with Eindhoven at its heart, has become one of Europe’s prominent high-tech regions in recent years. Not just a place on the map but a state of mind. This is the Brainport philosophy, a unique form of collaboration that lays the foundation for open innovation: sharing knowledge to multiply knowledge. High-tech and design go hand in hand with top-quality manufacturing and entrepreneurship. Brainport is so much more than the sum of its parts and, as such, is an accelerator of growth. Collaboration and cooperation, a considerable dose of intelligence and the ability to constantly adapt help accelerate the economy and get the individual moving, attracting talented students, knowledge workers, entrepreneurs and investors from around the world.

 

Brainport is also a magnet for tomorrow. Together we can develop the products and services that will solve the societal challenges of the future. Making products that the world longs for.
