Technology is fun, challenging and provides many opportunities for study, work, business and investment. Brainport Area Eindhoven will bring the most beautiful, exciting and innovative technology stories to light during the 3rd annual Dutch Technology Week, which takes place from the 18th until the 24th of May 2014.
As ‘Most Intelligent Community’ of the world (awarded 2011/2012), Brainport has realised many top achievements in the high tech industry, achievements we are very proud of. Companies, government authorities and knowledge institutes are all working together to organise a week full of technological surprises. Anyone attending the DTW can see, feel and experience how challenging and enjoyable it is to work on technology inventions that change the world.
Did you know that: Most smartphones and tablets contain chips produced with machines designed and build by ASML in Veldhoven. When you fly from Schiphol to Barcelona, your baggage is transported with handling systems from Vanderlande Industries in Veghel. And the ‘smart pill’ designed by Philips in Eindhoven, that knows exactly where in the human body a medicine is required as a result of its built in navigation.
