A new digital publication focussing on the European technology sector launched today, looking at new technological developments "from the archipelago of the Azores to the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains."
Tech.eu, established by former European editor of The Next Web Robin Wauters and a founding team, will seek to cover startup businesses, emerging markets and wider developments in the European tech industry beyond the "major hubs such as London, Berlin, Paris, Helsinki, Stockholm and Tel Aviv".
"Too many great stories are being left untold," wrote Wauters in a blog post accompanying the launch, "and we think the broader, global tech community would benefit if that weren’t the case."
The founding team of six includes Wauters as editor-in-chief, plus a multinational team of journalists, developers, trainers, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts in founding the site.
Tech.eu articles are divided into 'profiles', 'research' and 'inside'. Initial stories cover the topics of startup accelerators across Europe, a Belgian 3D printing firm and a call for entrepreneurial visas, all including maps, picture galleries or data visualisations.
"We’re thrilled to put Tech.eu on the tracks today," continued Wauters in the announcement post, "and we hope you will join us for the ride. Things will be a little rough around the edges here and there, but expect us to improve the website continually."
