France to host biggest pavilion at InnoTrans 2012

24.05.2012
UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will organise the largest national pavilion at InnoTrans 2012 — the world’s leading trade show for the rail and urban-transport sector. Approximately 90 companies will showcase their innovative products and services on the French Pavilion in Berlin, from 18 to 21 September 2012.

With more companies than ever before attending InnoTrans, France will once again host the national pavilion with the largest number of exhibitors. Approximately 90 companies will showcase their innovative products and services on the French Pavilion at InnoTrans, the leading rail and urban-transport trade show. Occupying 1,100m² across three halls (3.2, 11.2 and 21B) dedicated to rail technology and infrastructure, the Pavilion will be organised by UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency.

InnoTrans, a biennial event taking place in Berlin, consists of indoor and outdoor exhibitions, together with conferences. The only trade fair of its kind, each InnoTrans event attracts more visitors than the last: in 2010, 2,250 exhibitors from 45 countries welcomed more than 103,000 visitors. In 2012, exhibitor numbers on the France Pavilion will be up by 13% on 2010. The trade show will be held from 18 to 21 September in the German capital.

UBIFRANCE will also take advantage of the exhibition’s international standing to organise the second set of International Rail and Urban-Transport Meetings — as was done in 2010 — on 19 and 20 September 2012. The meetings will be sponsored by Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer français (SNCF, the French railways operator).

These meetings are designed to help French companies meet global decision-makers from the sector and identify opportunities across international markets. Additionally, UBIFRANCE will provide multi-country information workshops, along with B2B meetings with rail experts from 17 UBIFRANCE offices worldwide.

There will also be a business reception attended by players from the French and German rail sectors, which will take place at the French Embassy in Berlin over the period that the trade fair is taking place.

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as hi-tech clusters of excellence from six French regions will be present on the Pavilion, with industry players from Auvergne, Burgundy, Centre, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Pays de la Loire and Picardy. Most of the machinery on display will come from the electronics, smelting, metallurgy, machining, paint, pneumatics, and cables sectors.

As well as SNCF, two other French companies will again heighten the French presence at InnoTrans by sponsoring the trade show — SCOMA, France’s leading designer and manufacturer of stabiliser rods for rolling stock, and Leroy Automation, a specialist in automation products for railways.

In 2010, the French rail industry generated a turnover of €4.82 billion, including €1.65 billion in exports — a result that was up on 2009. The French rail sector is internationally recognised for its excellence across all sub-sectors, from rolling stock and tracks to engineering.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
