Attended by professionals from all over the world, the Hannover trade fair (known as Hannover Messe in German) is the international event of reference for industry and technology; this year, it will be held in the Northern German city at the end of April (from 23 to 27). Subdivided into eight fairs, it is the ideal forum for innovation in engineering and manufacturing, with a wide range of sectors covered.
Under the banner of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, a key French region for the mechanical-engineering sector, the French Pavilions will feature seven established players. The French Pavilions are supported by CCI International Nord de France, set up by the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, and by MECANOV, a regional high-technology cluster specializing in the mechanical-engineering sector.
In Northern France, the sector represents 45,000 employees working in 1,500 companies: this places Nord-Pas-de-Calais in fourth place, nationwide, in terms of the size of its mechanical-engineering industry. The main automotive and railway manufacturers, who are established in the region, benefit from the local workforce's proven expertise.
Companies from Nord-Pas-de-Calais at the Hannover fair will be present in the Industrial Supply, Mobilitec, GreenTec and Energy halls, which reflects the breadth of the industry across Northern France. A regional pavilion (Hall 4, Stand A42) will supplement the stands occupied by the various exhibitors (listed below). A full and detailed catalogue of exhibitors is available upon request.
ACIERIE ET FONDERIE DE LA HAUTE SAMBRE
This company (Hall 4, Stand A42) specializes in hand-mould castings weighing from 1kg to 3,500kg, with applications ranging from energy (oil, nuclear and gas), water and desalination plants to chemicals, petrochemicals and security.
COTE D'OPALE DEVELOPPEMENT
COTE D'OPALE DEVELOPPEMENT (Hall 27, Stand H40, and Hall 26, Stand C32) is an economic-development agency responsible for the promotion of the Northern France region, and its remit includes the ports of Boulogne-sur-Mer, Calais, Dunkirk and Saint-Omer.
DBT (Hall 27, Stand C32) has recently created a subsidiary dedicated solely to the CEV sector (where CEV stands for Charging Electric Vehicles). Nissan chose DBT for the production of its new quick chargers (QC) and asked the French company to take part in the Nissan Leaf tour of Eastern Europe (whereby DBT took care of the charging-up of the demonstration cars). DBT has also been picked by E-Laad, a Dutch consortium, to manufacture 350 charging stations to be set up across the Netherlands.
Leo FRANCOIS (Hall 4, Stand A42) produces metal parts by die cutting and stamping. Its fleet of 25 automatic presses and six hydraulic presses will shortly be completed by a new 1,600-tonne press. The specialist company's fields of activity include automotive (and, more particularly, the utility-vehicles sector), civil engineering and handling, among others.
SARL PARENT (Hall 4, Stand A42) specializes in machining mechanical and precision parts in all types of materials — steel, cast iron, stainless steel, heat-resisting steel, etc.
SFAM (Hall 4, Stand A42) manufactures and markets items in metal wire, helical coil springs and formed strip-metal parts. The company has recently taken over another specialist player, providing SFAM with expertise it did not have before in pipe bending and the manufacture of welded assemblies.
WILLAME SAS (Hall 4, Stand A42) is an SME with powerful manufacturing capabilities and proven expertise in the field of rolling, welding and control. The company specializes in manufacturing shells, cones and tubes in all grades of steel, including high-thickness parts, which are tailor-made to customer specifications.
Launched in 2007, MECANOV is a regional high-technology cluster specializing in the mechanical-engineering sector and covering three main areas: subcontracting, component manufacturing, and equipment manufacturing.

About CCI International Nord de France
CCI International Nord de France was founded in 2007 by the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region (or CCI du Nord - Pas de Calais). Its aim is to assist companies based across the city of Lille and its region in their international development.
CCI International Nord de France and MECANOV are supporting the exhibitors on the region's pavilions at the trade fair. Nord-Pas-de-Calais companies at the Hannover fair will be present in the Industrial Supply, Mobilitec, GreenTec and Energy halls. A regional pavilion (Hall 4, Stand A42) will supplement the stands occupied by the various exhibitors. A full catalogue of exhibitors is available upon request.
The Hannover trade fair, in the Northern German city of Hannover, will be held between 23 and 27 April 2012.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
