Eindhoven International Project Office

Sharing experience and knowledge on successful collaboration,
with a focus on creating new and better ecosystems, Smart City strategies
and socio-economic development for regions and cities around the world.

Triple Helix

Intense collaboration between governments, research & educational institutes and industry enables growth and prosperity.

Smart Cities

Smart city development is not about pushing technology, it is about smart connections and putting technology to work for the people.


Successful ecosystems develop a leading position in the world, by focus, strategic partnerships and support from government policies.


To attract investments, cities and regions should have a clear message, on what they stand for today as well as where they are heading.


The Brainport Eindhoven region is well known for its unique high tech ecosystem and the internationally acknowledged successful Triple Helix collaboration model. Eindhoven has been awarded the Most Intelligent Community of the year in 2011 and holds a front runner position in the evolution from Smart City towards Smart Society. Focusing on the strategic areas of Energy, Health and Mobility, the Brainport Eindhoven region aims at solving tomorrow’s societal challenges of regions and cities around the world.

The Eindhoven International Project Office (EIPO) unlocks the knowledge and experience of the successful development of the Eindhoven region from a traditional manufacturing industry into the world leading high tech hotspot that it is today.
