Back in June I went to Aachen, Germany to visit the European Microsoft Innovation Center (EMIC).  While I was there, I had the chance to speak with some of the Microsoft scientists and engineers working in Aachen and find out more about what kind of projects and research they are doing.  In this video, I chat with John Lefor, Director of EMIC.  He fills me in on the Innovation Center and where it fits into the scheme of things at Microsoft.

EMIC was founded in 2003 and is a Microsoft Research & Development facility.  The German lab is unique to Microsoft in its focus on collaborative applied research in Europe.  EMIC works in the context of development programs sponsored by the European Commission and the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Its research is focused on enterprise, mobility, home, security, software verification and embedded systems.
