Future-proof employment market
AgriFood Capital must offer sufficient employment now and in the future while remaining attractive to young people and those who want to continuously develop themselves. This is the aim of our regional employment market programme AgriFood Capital Werkt! Under the motto ‘flexible, talented, inclusive’, businesses, authorities, knowledge institutes and social organisations are working to make the best possible use of all the available talent and future-proof the employment market.
In Northeast Brabant, today’s innovation determines tomorrow’s future. We focus on high-impact innovations in the areas of food & nutrition, health and sustainability. To achieve this, we provide access to knowledge, talent, networks and capital. We create the necessary space, innovation centres and living labs. In the AgriFood Capital cluster, businesses, knowledge institutes and authorities share knowledge and facilities to develop innovative food-related products, concepts and technologies.
From farmer to caterer, the agrifood chain in Northeast Brabant is complete, and of the highest quality. We strengthen our agrifood ecosystem by encouraging the start and growth of companies and attracting new companies to the region. We see endless opportunities instead of boundaries. We invest in access to knowledge and human capital, develop ‘breeding grounds for innovation’ and encourage collaboration with businesses in other sectors.
Resilient living environment
Climate change, increasing urbanisation, the impact of food production on resources and environment, availability of raw materials, and the high standards we set for space to live, work and play demand a resilient environment. An environment that is climate resilient, energy neutral, clean & healthy, easily accessible and sustainably organised. For residents, entrepreneurs and visitors. Northeast-Brabant we are working on a region with prime locations where all the basic facilities are in place to work, study and live well.
