This is where unconventional minds meet

It’s not every day you meet an ecosystem quite like the Brainport region. This unconventional creative hub is excellent in many things but excels thanks to its focus on technology,  science, and design. You might know our region because of the High Tech Campus, Europe’s smartest square kilometer, but our ecosystem also excels beyond those borders.
