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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
