How to make the Eindhoven-Brainport ecosystem future proof?

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


This whitepaper is about how the Eindhoven region can be made more future proof. More specifically, the question is: what are the conditions, to be created in the next few years, which would enable the regional ecosystem to become more future proof and viable in the long run? We argue that (a) the mechanism of ‘scalable efficiency’ has to be transformed into ‘scalable learning’, involving a shared commitment to learn deeper and faster as the basis for performance; and (b) the Eindhoven regions needs a stronger shared identity and message that is consistent with the ecosystem’s history, is sufficiently distinctive, and appeals to a broad global audience.
