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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
