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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
