Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I invite any knowledgeable person to comment on my perception of Europe:

Space: Distant Third behind United States and Russia. Japan and China can potentially surpass Europe. major institutions: ESA.

Software: Most of the software I buy is American made. India and China are low cost alternatives to America. major companies?

Hardware: The pacific region has all the powerhouses: Europe?

Robotics: Japan, USA, Korea... Is Europe even trying?

Alt. Energy: Numero Uno.

Biotech: Europe and America are virtually tied, but the long term edge goes to Europe because of an anti-science mindset in America.

Could someone name some European companies or institutions that are nearly world leaders in future technology?
