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: 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.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
