Europe: Highlights 2015

This year, at London Tech Week we covered everything from the maker revolution to ethical hacking to the future of virtual reality. In France we explored how the town of Grenoble is attracting tech talent, how augmented reality is bringing the past back to life in Barcelona’s Casa Batlló, to the Netherlands where Fairphone is offering an ethical smartphone, and we took a look at the work Microsoft is doing at its research centre in Serbia.

We also covered a range of events in the UK from driverless cars, to drones being used in business. See some of the highlights below.
