Complete value chain is present
The complete value chain, from R&D to industrialisation, is present in this innovative region. This is partly due to the advanced manufacturing legacy of major tech/industrial companies located here historically, such as Philips, ASML, VDL, and DAF Trucks, making Brabant the 7th most innovative region in Europe. Unsurprisingly, it is with pride that Brabant has created the most complex machine in the world – ASML’s extreme ultraviolet lithography machine for the fabrication of the chips that sit in everything from iPhones to automobiles and satellites; a ‘hypermachine’ operating at the absolute cutting edge of human technical capability. ASML’s machines are so critical to everyday life that they influence world geopolitical equilibrium.
Also in this industry, collaboration is key. One of the places to do so is the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. This campus is the smartest square km in Europe and offers an ecosystem of 260 high tech companies. Every company at High Tech Campus Eindhoven shares a common goal: to develop new technologies and applications that help to solve social problems and challenges, and to successfully bring them to the market. This combination of technology and business is central to the many collaborations on the Campus – and it shows. Multinationals such as Philips, NXP and Intel, small and medium-sized high-tech companies, research institutes, service companies, scale-ups and startups are working together on the technologies and products of tomorrow.
Together, more than 12,500 international researchers, developers and business people on the Campus provide an enormous amount of knowledge and dynamics. They have made High Tech Campus Eindhoven one of the global hotspots in the field of Health & Vitality, Sustainability, Applied Intelligence, Smart Environments & Connectivity and Software & Platforms.
