Microsoft announced the creation of 200 engineering roles as it unveiled a new
€27m Engineering Hub, including an area called The Garage (above)…
…a space where Microsoft employees, as well as external partners such as customers, academics and students, will be encouraged to come to innovate, experiment and create, as well as fail.
As well as a large collaboration space, it also includes a maker space with cutting edge equipment like 3D printers, laser cutters and a milling machine.
Microsoft has ten other Garages in the US, Canada, Israel, India and China, but this is the first to be developed in Europe.
