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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
