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 Firmafrance.com 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 Firmafrance.com 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.

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...
