European Coastline Fair returns to Brittany in 2010

29.04.2010
The European Coastline Fair, the annual trade show devoted to the economy and management of coastlines, will take place from 5 to 7 October 2010 in Lorient, in Brittany. This unique event will feature B-to-B meetings for companies supplying equipment, technology and services relating to the coastline economy.

Building on the success of the first European Coastline Fair, which took place in 2009, this event will bring together decision-makers in public- and private-sector procurement, as well as professionals working in economic planning and development in coastline regions. In 2010, the European Coastline Fair will take place in October, in the port of Lorient, in Brittany (western France).

The European Coastline Fair is an innovative and multi-sectorial event for decision-makers, executives and managers from across Europe. It is the leading B-to-B meeting place for professionals in regional planning, equipment, technology and services linked to the coastline economy.

The European Coastline Fair provides a forum for B-to-B meetings, as well as opportunities for debates and the exchange of information. It is the only event of its kind in Europe. The first Fair, which took place in 2009, was attended by the leading decision-makers and professionals from across the coastline sector.

A survey of participants from the 2009 fair revealed very high levels of satisfaction with the event, which was organised by the SAFYM agency. Over 95% of the 71 French and other European companies that exhibited in 2009 have confirmed their attendance in 2010.

Alongside business meetings, there will also be a full programme of conferences, round-table debates and exhibitions, which will provide participants with the opportunity to discover innovative technologies and solutions, as well as to share relevant experiences.

In 2009, the 1,800 visitors/decision-makers in public- and private-sector procurement from France, French overseas territories, other European countries, Asia and Africa found practical answers to coastline-related problems through 14 conferences, which were organised in partnership with Cap l'Orient (Communauté d’Agglomération du Pays de Lorient – Lorient Area Community).

The themes previously addressed in 2009 are now more topical than ever, and will include sea-front planning, equipment and procedures to combat coastline erosion, floating barrages, waste management, the maintenance and protection of ports, oil-recovery vessels, clean renewable energies, retention basins, water and wastewater treatment, research and consultancy departments, and the integrated management of costal areas.

The European Coastline Fair is sponsored by 40 partners from across the EU, including the European Commission; the French Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Regional Planning; the office of the French Secretary of State for the Sea; and the Regional Council of Brittany. Other participating organisations include the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (an organisation bringing together representatives of 160 coastline regions across Europe); the Association Nationale des Élus du Littoral (the French association for elected representatives of coastal regions); Cap l’Orient; the Brittany Maritime Cluster; the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA) Maritime Cluster; and the Conservatoire du Littoral (a French organisation dedicated to protecting the country’s coastline).

About the European Coastline Fair

The European Coastline Fair (Salon Européen du Littoral – SEL) will take place from 5 to 7 October 2010 at the Parc des Expositions in Lorient, in Brittany (in the west of France).

Lorient, which is located in the heart of southern Brittany, was chosen to host the event because of its diverse and dynamic maritime economy. The town and its port are well-known for the innovative research carried out by companies and organisations in the area.

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
