In recent months, Europe has seen a flurry of initiatives aimed at fostering greater web talent in Europe and stimulating web entrepreneurship. In her blog, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission, continuously celebrates and encourages Europe’s tech and web entrepreneurs, as: “people following their dreams and creating their own companies, coming up with ideas and products with the potential to change the way we live, work, play, communicate and collaborate.”

Those who ignore the meaning of “cross-border mobility schemes” could have gone last Tuesday to the Greek theatre festival in Barcelona to get a fresh and disruptive definition.
