Grenoble hot location for IT investment

A recent article from the Guardian newspaper in UK does a great job of covering how Grenoble is once again becoming a hot technology center and is now beating London on some fronts for investment in high tech R & D. It mentions Sun, covers new French R&D tax credits and associated advantages of high tech investment in France :-)

What Grenoble offers is an existing tech community and a huge community of science and technology students; they account for more than 60,000 of Grenoble's wider population of around 250,000. London might be strong on mobile and creative web development, but can it match that combination of talent, tax breaks and quality of life?...there aren't many offices where it's quite normal to fit in a snowboarding session before work.

The article was also picked up by Courrier International (full version requires log in)
