Sun 20 Apr 2014
The European Commission have released the results of their study into Europe’s top ICT hubs. The report ranks Munich, London and Paris as Europe’s top tech hotspots, after examining factors such as research and development, funding opportunities, and employment growth. Findings also suggest that size is no factor when it comes to ICT success with smaller regions such as Cambridge and Darmstadt, Germany also ranking highly for innovation and active business communities.
Most of Europe’s ICT activity takes place in 34 regions across 12 countries. Key ingredients to success included access to top Universities and research centres and funding opportunities such as venture capital.
European Commission Vice-President @NeelieKroesEU said: “This is proof that digital success comes through a willingness to invest, an open mindset for innovation and planning. Europe needs to build these values today to be a global leader in technology.”
