PICOM, which is supported by the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, will be presenting seven of its members in the EUROCIS Section. EUROSHOP is the foremost international exhibition for solutions and equipment in the distribution sector; the trade fair will take place from 16 to 20 February 2014 in Düsseldorf (Germany).
PICOM, which was established in 2006 in the north of France (near the city of Lille), is France’s competitiveness cluster for the retail sector: PICOM has, among its members, most of France’s biggest retailers as well as 15 R&D centres. PICOM is supported by the regional council of Nord-Pas-de-Calais.
PICOM will be presenting seven of its members on the French Pavilion, organized by UBIFRANCE, at Display 7aG24 (Hall 7), at the EUROSHOP trade fair. EUROSHOP will take place in mid-February (16 to 20), in Düsseldorf (Western Germany).
PICOM is currently building a strategy involving partnerships abroad. It is unifying a network of businesses and R&D facilities with a wide range of acknowledged competencies. Over 100 companies are now partners in the Cluster, one-third of which are technology SMEs, as well as 15 research laboratories gathering several hundred researchers specialised in ICT.
The French companies that will be showcased at EUROSHOP all run innovative projects in connection with the areas of activity covered by the Cluster. Visitors are encouraged to visit the stand to meet representatives from each of the companies listed below. Further information on the exhibitors can be provided on request.

Natural Security stores biometric data, which is used for authentication, on a Secure Element such as a key fob, micro-SD, smart card, token or smartphone. All information is exchanged using secure, mid-range, contactless technology, enabling strong authentication without manipulation. The absence of a database makes the Natural Security authentication process very easy to integrate into existing solutions.
Onyme Opinion is a real-time management solution for customer feedback. The solution is able to measure, follow and analyse the customer experience. Onyme Opinion delivers the key satisfaction (and dissatisfaction) points, which are directly extracted from comments voiced by the customer himself (or herself).
Phocéis is one of the leading French mobile-communications agencies, specializing in connected commerce. The company has started its international expansion, working cross-channel strategy projects with major brands in the retail and distribution sectors (Auchan, But, 3 Suisses etc.). Phocéis is able to handle all projects on iOS, Android or Windows-Phone platforms, as well as on HTML5 mobile websites.
Webpulser assists companies in the development of innovative projects utilizing web technologies and agile-development methodology. Prototypes can be developed within a few weeks in order to test innovative new uses provided by 3D printing in the retail world.
Zetes is a highly specialized international group and a pioneer in identification and mobility solutions: the business is based on building connections, be they focused on physical movements and digital flows, customers and their critical data, consumers and corporations, or citizens and governments. By using the most innovative technologies, the company allows its customers to improve speed, quality and accuracy in order to be at the cutting edge of their industry.

PICOM’s R&D policy runs along several avenues of research, including that of ubiquitous worlds (where it will become possible for consumers to shop anywhere, at any time), as illustrated by the New Shopping Experience® concept.
Launched in 2010, this initiative heralds what the shopping experience will be like in the near future. It is being implemented with the help of innovative SMEs and ICT research teams, and supported by major distribution brands. In the past four years, the New Shopping Experience® scheme has staged over 30 innovative projects.
In 2013, PICOM began a new approach by creating the Shopping Innovation Lab, a project which was recently taken up by the French government thanks to its Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir (or Future Investments Programme).
The programme, driven by PICOM and its partners, is the only one of its kind in Europe and provides genuine backing for innovation in the field of commerce and related technologies. The programme will feature an R&D laboratory, with fully equipped technological facilities, and will provide businesses and research teams with high value-added services to boost innovation in commerce.For further information, go to: www.picom.fr

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
