UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Development, will present a dozen innovative French companies on the French Pavilion at the Nor-Shipping trade show, which will take place in Oslo (Norway) from 24 to 27 May 2011.

The biennial Nor-Shipping exhibition is a leading trade show for the shipbuilding, ship-repair and shipping industries.

The event acts as a gateway to Norwegian ship owners, who control the world's fifth largest commercial fleet. Nor-Shipping is also the major event for naval-equipment manufacturers and shipyards in Europe. In 2009, the event drew nearly 16,000 visitors and 1,100 exhibitors from 52 countries, with 22 national pavilions representing the world's main shipping industries.

This year, French industry will be represented by a dozen companies and high-tech clusters in the sector. Their technologies and expertise cover a broad range of maritime equipment and services, covering areas such as construction, propulsion, electronic systems and communication. The French Pavilion, which will be located in Hall D, will be a magnet for companies wishing to establish contacts with professionals from around the world.

The following French companies will be available to meet visitors on the French Pavilion in Hall D of the trade show: BPN-Bretagne Pôle Naval/SEA to SEA (a grouping of companies involved in the shipbuilding industry in Brittany, in western France), Eutelsat (a satellite operator), GICAN (a group of naval companies), JEUMONT Electric (a specialist in electrical equipment), MASSON MARINE (an expert in marine-propulsion systems), Orange (a telecommunications operator), Saft (a manufacturer of high-tech batteries), STX Lorient (a recognised player in shipbuilding), and Zodiac SOLAS (a specialist in evacuation systems and life rafts).

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
