It is no coincidence, that those sectors are the focal points of Midpoint Brabant, an alliance in which administrators of the Hart van Brabant have joined forces with businesses and knowledge institutes. Entrepreneurs, educators and government are working together on Social Innovation – an approach to regional development unrivalled in Europe and attracting international attention.
THE AMERICAN NETHERLANDER
OPEN TO THE WORLD
The Heart of Brabant has a dedicated work force made up of people who like to face the world with an open attitude. Most of them speak good English and know what international collaboration means: they operate worldwide, from China and Japan, to Florida and California. As a matter of fact, making connections is vital to the kind of Social Innovation that runs through the veins of Mid-Brabant. That’s how the region’s current high-tech aeronautical and industrial maintenance service sectors evolved out of its former textile industry. It is also how the Heart of Brabant became home to the internationally acclaimed faculties of Tilburg University – such as economics, law and social studies. All of this is characteristic for a community that views living and working together as vital, and that takes pleasure in linking knowledge to production, people to technology, and gamma concepts to beta facts. www.hollandexpatcentersouth.com
