The Dutch province of Brabant is located in the southern part of the Netherlands, strategically situated between Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Europe’s leading seaport in Rotterdam and the major German economic heartland of the Rhine-Ruhr region. Brabant’s central location provides for a perfect springboard into the European market.
The region is truly a success story with many bright innovations and companies. We have a rapidly growing and world-leading production and knowledge economy and the region has grown more vigorously than any other province in the Netherlands. Brabant has evolved into a hotbed of innovative ecosystems in High Tech, Life Sciences and Health, Agrifood and Data Science. It is the #1 region in R&D spending and more than 50% of all European patent applications are generated here.
"To further develop and implement a key enabling technology such as AI, it is vital for Brabant to pursue and profit from international cooperation with comparable knowledge regions that deploy AI".
To further develop and implement a key enabling technology such as AI, it is vital for Brabant to pursue and profit from international cooperation with comparable knowledge regions that deploy AI. Entrepreneurship is the driver of change. From sustainable food sources to a healthy future, climate-neutral energy, and developing promising key technologies – the Brabant Development Agency (BOM) ensures that startups playing a role in these fields get off to a flying start and grow into scaleups, that the right facilities are always available to Brabant-based companies, and that companies that aspire to go global can actually do so. Over the last four years BOM has worked with over 600 companies to achieve such an impact.
