Two new Technology Masters at Fontys In a 200-signature document, the Brainport region agreed to double the number of graduates in technology and IT by 2025. This is desperately needed because of the great shortage of technicians on the labour market. Brainport, because of the role of the high-tech manufacturing industry, is extra vulnerable in this area.
