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: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
