We'll hear if this means yet another EU challenge to the dominance of US firms like Google. We talk to Guy Levin who heads up Europe's Coalition for a Digital Economy, and entrepreneur Nicholas Russell from wearepopup.com, who recently addressed European lawmakers on the problems firms face in pursuing a digital strategy. Also in the programme, as we apparently hurtle towards the age of 'Future Shock' - or the dramatic impact innovation can have on everyday life - what will it mean? Plus, the currency that came in from the cold. Hudson Institute economist and World Business Report regular, Irwin Stelzer tells us how the rising Chinese yuan is proving a major challenge to Washington's standing on the world stage. And, bless my follicles...we hear from a hair colourist how grey hair has now become high fashion.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
