Description company activity

Brainport Development is the economic development agency of the Brainport Eindhoven region. Close collaboration with many partners, sharing knowledge and smart entrepreneurship characterise the open innovation culture which makes Brainport Eindhoven the growth accelerator of the Dutch economy. As an independent and demand-driven organization Brainport Development develops the regional economic strategy, develops and realizes projects, offers business advice and promotes Brainport Eindhoven in the Netherlands and abroad.

Brainport Eindhoven has great ambitions in terms of mobility. The ultimate goal: zero emissions, traffic jams and deaths. This requires not only smart technology solutions, but a transition of a complete infrastructure and industry. There is a widespread need for sustainable, emission-free, smart and safe technological mobility solutions: electrically powered vehicles and associated infrastructure, hydrogen as energy carrier and smart, autonomous and connected vehicles and digital networks and systems. With its many, closely cooperating, innovative companies, IT businesses and knowledge and educational institutes that focus on mobility, Brainport holds an excellent position. Add the Automotive Campus and a government that is supporting mobility pilots in public spaces or is acting as launching customer, and the world is at our feet.

As Brainport Development we support with:
-Support in project and roadmap development, consortia building, project management, etc.
-Support in lobbying for the automotive industry, creating funding opportunities, etc.
-Coordination services for automotive/mobility projects and programmes
-International business development and exposure
