From advances that will change our lives to offbeat oddities, Spectrum keeps you abreast of developments in the realm of European science and technology news.
Spectrum: March of the new commissioners
The new commissioners are in Brussels, talking digital startups, entrepreneurs, and there are words of warning from the old guard. Also, the Berlin Grindr art row. And why we need natural specimens for hundreds of years.
Spectrum: polio, and the Brussels gadget guide
We turn our attentions away from big news diseases (Ebola) to a small news disease called polio. And we ask what we're doing on vaccines, and why it can re-emerge. Also, the journalist's guide to technology in Brussels.
Spectrum: robot in the palm of your hand
We head down to one of Europe's busiest airports to find out how prepared Germany is for Ebola. Also on the program, India's robot surgery breakthrough. And our reporter Hannah Fuchs tells us about her week with Google Glass.
Spectrum: make everything mandatory!
Germany looks set to fail its target for measles vaccination and we want to know: what do you do if mandatory vaccination isn't the go? Also: you and Industry 4.0. And the Parisian lovelock selfie campaign that's no bridge to a tourist's heart.
