Ahead of the EU referendum, why not test your knowledge of European tech pioneers and the EU’s contribution to the industry
On 23 June, the British electorate will decide whether the UK remains a member of the European Union (EU) or if it will initiate a ‘Brexit’.
The consequences of the decision will have ramifications for all of society and all industries – including technology.
Research by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) suggests a negative impact on the UK telecoms industry and the majority of British tech firms want to stay, claiming the EU makes them globally competitive and gives it a more favourable trading relationship with other members.
But regardless of the result, there is no doubting Europe’s contribution to technology, while the EU itself has major influence over research and regulation.
