Firmafrance exporters’ platform puts 48,000 products at your fingertips

04.10.2006, an online directory of French exporters and products, has just been revamped by UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, in order to provide users with increased efficiency, better visibility and improved security.

This unique B2B internet portal in English simplifies contacts between French exporters and professionals worldwide who are seeking reliable suppliers and partners, and offers free access to a selection of 15,000 French exporters and 48,000 products across all sectors.

Professionals looking for new partnerships for technology transfers or distribution contracts can use to get in touch with export sales managers or experienced suppliers, selected according to their individual requirements. Companies provide visitors to the site with export catalogues, technical descriptions of their products, photos, references, targeted markets, list of countries where they are present, partnership proposals and lists of trade fairs they will attend.

The number of selected companies and products available, as well as the number of business offers and business requests, can be seen directly, sector by sector, in the Business Area section. A Focus On section presents a new company or product every day. Visitors have easier access to companies and products through the 12 Sector Communities. What is more, the site’s efficient search engine makes it easier to search for a company or a product by technical specifications.

Each Sector Community has its own Business Opportunity section where it is possible to post a business offer or request online. Direct business contacts are made easier and more secure in this new version of thanks to an integrated messenger system as well as an alert system that sends a message to registered users as soon as a contact is made in the Business Opportunity section.

Visitors can also benefit from valued-added content, including the latest business news, innovations and technology updates as well as company press releases. Special reports address industry-specific issues and feature French regional market surveys. Finally, several pages are dedicated to French industry organisations, with presentations of their activities and directories of their members, who each display their products on the portal.

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
