Breda is bursting with talent! That gives the city a great dynamic. Breda appreciates everyone’s talent and offers plenty of opportunities to develop it. Education is highly regarded nationally and internationally, cooperation between business and government are unparalleled in Breda. They stand out even more because of our focuses on applied technology and creativity. TT&C is the sector that already has significant growth potential in itself. It is also the industry that operates contagiously in other sectors and is able to drive innovations like no other and move SMEs into new – digital – business models.


Also nice are the crossovers between the clusters ‘robotization’ and ‘gaming’.  Breda’s courses are also world renowned in this area. Avans, Breda University of Applied Sciences and the Netherlands Defence Academy attract tens of thousands of students from the Netherlands and abroad every year.  CURIO and De Rooi Pannen provide a wide range of vocational training courses to enable young people to develop their talents. Breda works in an amazing pool of talent with easy connections to business.

Breda’s International School offers primary and secondary education to international pupils from 3 to 18 years old under a single roof!


Last, but not least: Breda is known for music. Not only for its many music festivals, but also as the home of world-famous DJs such as Tiësto, Hardwell and Dannick.
