IBM EMEA Best Student Recognition Event 2011

Last week on July 6-8, 2011, three members of our team have attended Best Student Recognition Event, held in IBM innovation center in La Gaude, France. Along with more than seventy students from all over Europe, Middle East and Africa, we were given a unique opportunity to hear from IBM executives and experts on IBM Smarter Planet strategy, their innovative solutions and technologies.
