This Week in the World of Tech – Brussels, Berlin & Ireland

All over Europe, from Brussels to Berlin and of course, Ireland, we are always eager to see what discoveries our tech colleagues have made and the new products and services out there. This week our team at Stelfox has looked at some of the most outstanding Tech Headlines within our Irish and European network.

From Renewable Energy to Remote Conferences, tech is powering all aspects of our lives.

Brussels: Green Recovery

Returning to Brussels this week, the ‘Green Recovery Plan’ has shown innovation, and a proactive approach in making the EU ‘Carbon Neutral’ by 2050, resulting in exciting funding for energy transition technologies.

With €10 billion anticipated as being set aside for research, innovation and digitisation, it is a time for analysis (and industry brainstorming) to ensure the development of new service offerings. It is a definite area of growth for green-minded tech talent.

Berlin: Sustainable Investment in Tech

Staying Green & Sustainable, Berlin is once again leading the way in startup ingenuity, with the news that Delivery Hero, a prominent delivery operator has been making steady & successive investments in tech startups.

This is aiming to slightly offset the environmental impact that their business model naturally creates.  

Galway: Tech City of the Future

It has been wonderful to see growth and job expansion in Ireland this week, with Globalization Partners set to establish a new technology centre and create 100 jobs in the city. Galway is home to an exciting tech ecosystem, supported locally by GMIT and NUI Galway.

This comes in a week where Galway, alongside Dublin and Cork, were ranked as Tech Cities of the Future. In this unforeseen time for all markets, it is a very welcome development to see.  

Dublin: Tech Masterclass

Dublin is set to host FutureHuman the first Major International Hybrid Tech Event, a part-in person, part-online event, with Masterclasses and Technical Workshops set to take place LIVE, on a purpose-built stage in Dublin, whilst being accessible remotely.

It shows how events are changing, and how tech is boosting their potential and attendance. For a brief comparison, its predecessor Inspirefest attracted over 3,000 physical visitors last year.

In 2020, perhaps this may be the best way to appeal to people wanting a taste of the familiar.
