Microsoft to create three new search technology centres in Europe

Back in June  Microsoft announced a new European Search Technology Centre at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. Late last week Steve Ballmer announced that the center will be based in three European locations, in Paris, Munich and London. The new STC will be led by Jordi Ribas.

The videos below include comments from Steve Ballmer. José Manuel Barroso welcomes the announcement and makes the connection with the European Commission's Lisbon strategy for Growth & Jobs.

Update: Aftenposten has reported the announcement of additional hiring in Norway too following Microsoft's acquisution of Fast earlier in the year.
