COLLABORATION WITH HIGH-TECH AND DESIGN ECOSYSTEMS WORLDWIDE
Collaboration between government, research and industry is in our genes and is an integral feature of our success. It’s brought us to the attention of other successful regions internationally, who are often keen to work with us. Our horizons have widened from provincial and national, to the European and global arenas. It’s logical really, given that our companies and knowledge institutions work on an international scale. This applies not only to the export of products and services, but also to alliances with innovation partners and the recruitment of global talent. As a region we want to attract more foreign investment to strengthen the Brainport ecosystem and boost employment. To increase our international influence, partners from the region have united in the Brainport International Programme. This aims to enhance relationships with high-tech hotspots in neighboring Belgium and Germany, and build up a network with Asian and American knowledge-regions, with the purpose of strengthening Brainport’s position in the areas of knowledge and economy.
