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.A full list of exhibitors is available at:

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
