This is Eindhoven


Eindhoven is a municipality and a city located in the province of North Brabant in the south of the Netherlands. It has a surface of 88,84 km². The city has a population of above 225.000 (November 2015), making it the fifth-largest municipality of the Netherlands and the largest of North Brabant. The name Eindhoven derives from the contraction of the regional words ‘eind’ (meaning last or end) and ‘hove’ (or ‘hoeve’; a section of some hectares of land).

When you google innovation, it is no coincidence that the first images you will find are light bulbs. 125 years ago, Philips brought light to the City of Eindhoven. The company transformed the city into a vibrant industrial success story. Nowadays Eindhoven is a city of opportunity, encouraging possibilities. Of brainpower, work ethic, of fun. There is a constant flow of new developments in the fields of creativity, innovation, technology, design and knowledge. Eindhoven is bursting with energy. And we are glad to share it with you.
