Today’s challenges bring tomorrow’s economic opportunities
In Brainport we come up with solutions for some of the big issues that face societies today in the areas of health, mobility, energy, food and safety. We tackle these challenges with a combination of technology, design and social innovation – precisely where the talents in Brainport lie. We stimulate our companies and knowledge centers to come up with creative, new solutions. This offers many companies a new window of opportunity to search for connections with other sectors and thus tap into global markets previously out of reach. In this way, Brainport not only makes economic opportunities from the challenges of tomorrow but contributes to a more sustainable, healthy and safe society.
'LIVING LABS' HELP US BRING NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO MARKET
The process of finding these solutions stimulates our industrial and knowledge base to be both creative and innovative. The region is the first to profit from this innovative capacity, both economically and socially. By putting users, customers and residents centrally, we achieve faster implementation and an accelerating rate of innovation. Strong consortiums of innovative companies, knowledge institutions and social partners give shape to breakthrough projects and 'living labs', stimulated by Brainport. Each project has a different degree of impact and success, and some succeed better than others, but that is part of innovation. And innovation is at the heart of Brainport.
