Northern France Rails into INNOTRANS 2012

11.07.2012
Over 25 businesses and organisations from the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardy regions of France will exhibit on the Northern France Rail pavilion at the INNOTRANS trade show in Berlin (Germany) from 18 to 21 September 2012. The pavilion, which will demonstrate the latest innovations in the regions' rail sector, will cover over 320m² at the rail industry's international event.

As France's largest centre for rail transport and technology, the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardy regions (in northern France) are home to 40% of France's railway-construction industry, with 13,000 people working in more than 150 companies across the sector. Businesses in these two regions offer the skills and know-how to provide a complete rail system, including infrastructure, rolling stock, control systems, maintenance and services.

At the INNOTRANS trade show in Berlin (Germany) in September of this year, the two French regions will organise the 320m² Northern France Rail pavilion, which will feature a high-tech cluster, the French Rail Industry Association and numerous examples of R&D facilities, among other exhibiting organisations.

Amid the new features to be presented on the pavilion will be the TRANSALLEY Sustainable Transport and Mobility Centre, which combines innovative R&D centres and higher-education organisations, together with businesses. Located next to the University of Valenciennes (in the northern French city), on the Campus for Innovation in Sustainable Transport, the centre's 34 hectares are due to house a hi-tech transport hub and the University's innovation centre. Additionally, the construction of a cluster of low-energy buildings (180,000m²) is also underway.

The RAILENIUM Technological Research Institute will also be showcased at the trade show. The institute, which is the only one of its kind in Europe, is dedicated to railway infrastructure and intends to become the world's leader in rail-related R&D.

RAILENIUM combines exceptional testing resources with an extensive workforce of public- and private-sector researchers at a site that will soon create 300 direct jobs. RAILENIUM aims to assist in the creation of a smarter, more sustainable, more cost-effective and more reliable rail infrastructure. The RAILENIUM initiative is open to European partners and will strengthen the role of northern France in the global rail industry.

Furthermore, another project to be unveiled at the trade show is CADEMCE, which stands for the Dynamic and Environmental Characterisation of Electrical Collection Equipment. Beginning in 2014, the CADEMCE platform will offer rail testing for electric-current collection, which will enhance the quality of electrical power and reduce research costs.

Please see below for a list of the businesses and research institutions on the Northern France Rail pavilion (Hall 3.2, Stand 210 A.G.) at INNOTRANS from 18 to 21 September 2012; further information is available on request.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
