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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

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...
