Noord Brabant (NL)

Noord Brabant (NL)

Noord-Brabant is a province of the Netherlands centrally positioned between the port cities of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the German Ruhr area. Five larger cities in the heart of the province form the second urban network of the Netherlands: Breda, Eindhoven, Helmond, 's-Hertogenbosch and Tilburg.

Core tasks of the Province of Noord-Brabant are (a) spatial development, (b) accessibility and mobility for the region, (c) regional economic policy and (d) culture and regional identity.

The Province of Noord-Brabant is facing a new challenge. As in other regions of Europe, the economic crisis is exerting enormous pressure on public resources. At the same time, far-reaching social developments demand an innovative approach. The direct consequences of the financial, energy and climate crises requires the province to reflect on the future of Brabant. The mission is to create an excellent environment for economic and social development towards a high quality of life and, through this, to achieve a innovative and globally competitive region.

Noord Brabant is active within the Polis Management Committee and the Traffic Efficiency & Mobility Working Group.

Noord Brabant is involved in several EU projects including: iCars , CVIS , SAFESPOT and STARS.
