Eindhoven News and Radio 4 Brainport work closely together in bring the local news.
Radio4Brainport is an independent expat radio station in English in the Brainport region. It has been broadcasting since 2016 with the help of a team of volunteers. At the moment Radio 4 Brainport broadcasts hourly news including international, national and local news headlines, as well as traffic updates, weather bulletin, talks on innovation and science, politics etc. Eindhoven News’ daily online news is very suitable for this purpose.
The radio station provides news and reports in English. Reading all the news is time consuming, a technical development to reduce the recording is very convenient. Using Eindhoven News is logical as they already have the regional news in English and their target audience is the same.
“Eindhoven News with its 10 years of experience in connecting the internationals through news, events and various other social activities can most surely help in creating a larger platform for Radio 4 Brainport,” says Irene Martens, Founder Director Eindhoven News.
Jean-Paul Linnartz, co-founder of the radio station also believes that this development is a major enhancement to their programming.
Besides the news more live streams and podcasts (made by Radio 4 Brainport) appealing to the internationals are going to be shared. These podcasts now are available on the site of Eindhoven News.

Or, in the AI episode, Jean-Paul Linnartz welcomes Maarten Steinbuch, Professor in Systems and Control, Carlo van de Weijer, head of the Strategic Area Smart Mobility, Vincent Müller, Professor Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, and team Tech United, the world champions robot soccer from the Eindhoven University of Technology, to discuss Artificial Intelligence.
Our mediumwave signal on 747 was poor in the Northern part of Eindhoven. Reception is now greatly improved as Radio Nederwetten relays our program during the day. So try 747 or 828 to listen in your car. The antenna location in Nederwetten allows a much more effective radiation of the radio signal//.
Scientific research that is being quoted over and over again? Prof. Bert Blocken’s insights on how win seconds in a cycling race, how to descent faster or on what position to take in a platoon have a profound impact of the big tours and races. Radio 4 Brainport visited this unique research facility at TU Eindhoven.

Forecasting the Air Quality in every City Street?
Predicting turbulent air flows is hard. Eindhoven University of Technology has a unique wind tunnel that can experimentally simulate air flows. Although these new aerodynamic insights in cycling sport have been covered widely in the media, the insights on wind forces, on the spread of pollution, such as particulate matter (fijnstof) are also of high societal relevance. Radio 4 Brainport asked Prof. Bert Blocken to elaborate on what we can learn from wind tunnel experiments.

For the first team this year the Solar Team will be able to build in a new solar racing car fully under their own control.
Solar Team Eindhoven has kicked off the production process for the fourth edition in its series of solar-powered family vehicles. A notable change since the project started seven years ago is that the entire creation process will take place in Eindhoven: most of the design is based at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the manufacturing will be on the Brainport Industries Campus (BIC). The current team, consisting of 26 students from the TU/e working full-time on the project, will compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia, on 13-20 October 2019.
“This time everything is coming together here in the Brainport region, with all of our partners. And, here at the BIC, we are working to develop as many partnerships as possible, to ensure that we make this ecosystem work”, says Evan Quadvlieg, Technical Acquisition Manager at Solar Team Eindhoven.
