Eindhoven University of Technology and Tilburg University are establishing a joint Graduate School in ’s-Hertogenbosch with master and post-master programs in Data Science and Entrepreneurship. To support and stimulate entrepreneurship, the Graduate School will offer facilities for start-up businesses and new technology. Seminars and courses for members of the business community will also be organized. A survey among stakeholders in the Brainport region has shown that the demand for new data scientists is increasing rapidly. The ’s-Hertogenbosch City Council and the Province of Noord-Brabant have undertaken to participate in the Graduate School. The investing parties, united in the Grand Initiative Data Science, have committed to making efforts to strengthen education, research and business development in the field of big data. The latter has the potential to develop into a new, internationally appealing pillar of the Dutch economy in the triangle between ’s-Hertogenbosch – Tilburg – Eindhoven. By setting up new forms of cooperation, the four partners from Brabant wish to gain a crucial advantage.
