Europe's countries and regions, however, face substantial challenges in rapidly moving to the marketplace the technical innovations that are being developed in universities, national laboratories and corporations.

Beginning on January 4th, the series sees John McIntyre, Enterprise Ireland's Silicon Valley man on the ground who is chartered with driving market momentum for Irish software, services, and technology companies in the North American marketplace.
