B.I.G. Talents celebrates innovation in biotech, IT and greentech

22.10.2010
B.I.G. Talents 2010 is the first national event combining biotechnology, information technology and green technology. This unique event includes a trade fair and a business centre dedicated to cutting-edge technologies for project leaders or managers of innovative businesses. B.I.G. Talents takes place on 17-18 November in the Exhibition Centre, Rouen (France) in the Haute-Normandie region, which is a dynamic area at the heart of innovation.

The current climate is more conducive than ever to the development of innovative projects. European and national policies backing R&D, the ‘grand emprunt’ (a €35 billion national loan launched by President Sarkozy), and funds created by competitive clusters, have all contributed to a growth in the number of innovative schemes.

B.I.G Talents allows for the acceleration of innovative projects through its unique business centre. This business centre gives companies involved in innovative projects, along with future entrepreneurs, the opportunity to meet potential clients or partners such as schools, investors and banks, in complete confidentiality. These pre-scheduled meetings come in the form of 40-minute appointments.

Project developers can also request a ‘BIG Meeting’, where they have the opportunity to take part in round-table discussions with potential partners. This helps to speed up project development.

The trade event is divided into two areas: a scientific and technological resources village, and a funding and backing resources village. These two zones bring together the resources, professionals and technology partners of tomorrow, in one place.

The scientific and technological resources village brings together businesses, R&D laboratories and training organisations, while the funding and backing resources village gives attendees the chance to discover incubation, workspace, financial and local government assembly structures.

In addition to the trade fair, and in order to experience technologies at first hand, B.I.G. Talents offers four virtual visits. These virtual visits enable participants to speak with laboratory researchers, view their equipment, and to exchange contact details online without having to leave the B.I.G. Talents trade show.

PRIMACEN, the Regional Platform for Cellular Imagery Research in Haute-Normandie, and CORIA, the Interprofessional Research Centre for Aerothermochemistry, are among the companies taking part in these virtual visits. The Rouen Institute for Materials Research, and the Fine Organic Chemistry Research Institute will also be on the programme.

B.I.G. Talents plays host to eight conferences covering three main sectors: health and biotechnology, I-Technology, and green technology.

Attendees can also take part in a round-table meeting on funding innovation and equity capital investment. This meeting offers advice and allows for exchanges between company directors on the funding of innovations. This round-table meeting will take place on Thursday 18 November from 10.00am to 11.00am.

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
