Members of Parliament visit BSD
On Monday 28 January a number of members of the Lower House visited Brainport Smart District. Paul Smeulders, formerly alderman in Helmond and currently Member of Parliament for Groenlinks, was one of them. Elphi Nelissen, who alongside Paul Smeulders was one of the initiators of the new smart district in Brandevoort in Helmond, was also present. In the morning they discussed the plans for Brainport Smart District and then got into electric cars for a tour of the as yet unbuilt area of Brandevoort. In the afternoon the MPs met a number of entrepreneurs who will start projects in the area, as well as a prospective resident of the new district.
