UBIFRANCE unveils four French pavilions at CeBIT 2010

Four French Pavilions will showcase 50 French companies and R&D centres in the IT and telecoms sector at CeBIT 2010, which will take place in Hanover (Germany) from 2 to 6 March 2010. The collective pavilions are organised by UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development.

CeBIT 2010 will take place in Hanover in early March 2010 and will showcase cutting-edge players in IT and telecommunications from across Europe and the rest of the world. The four French Pavilions will be located as follows: Business Solutions in Hall 3 – Booth H04; Telematics and Navigation in Hall 7 – Booth A10; Research & Development in Hall 9 – Booth B09; and Planet Reseller in Hall 14 – Booth K36.

A new feature for the 2010 event will be a joint UBIFRANCE stand, dedicated to Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (in Hall 7, devoted to Telematics and Navigation). Companies from the Midi-Pyrenees region of south-western France will be represented on this Pavilion.

The Aerospace Valley international competitiveness cluster, which totals more than 55,000 jobs in the aerospace and embedded systems sectors, is partly located in the region of Midi-Pyrenees (as well as in the neighbouring region of Aquitaine). The Airbus headquarters are also located in this region, as well as those of other leading international prime contractors. Midi-Pyrenees is a European leader in the design and manufacture of space systems and applications.

The Carnot Institutes will also take part in CeBIT for the second time (in Hall 9, devoted to Research & Development). The 33 Carnot Institutes form a unique research network for 12,800 scientists who all share the same goal – to promote innovation, technological transfers and partnership agreements between governmental R&D establishments, on the one hand, and companies involved in manufacturing, engineering, and technology, on the other.

The Carnot network is one of the biggest European research and technology organisations. Its institutes cover seven areas of expertise, including information and communications technology, as well as micro- and nano-technologies. Franco-German projects in application-specific research are conducted jointly by the Carnot Institutes and the Fraunhofer Society for the ICT sector.

Regional business development agencies will be present on the French Pavilions, including Moselle Development, the economic development agency set up by Moselle département of eastern France (in Hall 9), and the Paris Region Economic Development Agency (in Hall 3, devoted to Business Solutions).

French SMEs will also be taking part in CeBIT – business IT solutions will be represented on the French Pavilion in Hall 3 (Business Solutions), which will focus on communications software, project-management software, 3D web applications, email archiving services, and automated legacy modernisation solutions.

The second Planet Reseller French Pavilion will target prospective international distributors (in Hall 14).

At CeBIT 2008, France was an official partner country of the event. France benefited greatly from CeBIT 2008 and further expanded its business links with Germany in the wake of the trade fair. Indeed, the French IT and telecoms sector is in a good position to face the global financial crisis: in 2010, the sector in France is expected to record growth of 0.4%, compared with an average of 0.3% for the sector in Europe.


UBIFRANCE is the French Agency for International Business Development, and is part of France’s export-support framework.

As the partner of reference for French companies wishing to export, UBIFRANCE offers a complete range of services based on the provision of information about export markets, about legal issues and regulations, and about international finance and tenders, while also supplying sectorial data. In addition, UBIFRANCE offers export advice and targeted support to companies’ commercial activities, such as exploratory visits, partnership meetings, foreign exhibitions and international press communication. Finally, UBIFRANCE runs the International Postgraduate Programme (VIE) for employing qualified personnel and young graduates outside France.

UBIFRANCE is organising the French Pavilions at CeBIT, which will take place in Hanover (in the north of Germany) from 2 to 6 March 2010. The French Pavilions will be located as follows: Business Solutions in Hall 3 – Booth H04; Telematics and Navigation in Hall 7 – Booth A10; Research & Development in Hall 9 – Booth B09; and Planet Reseller in Hall 14 – Booth K36.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
