SIVAL to focus plant sector on water management in January 2013

29.11.2012
SIVAL, the plant-production trade show of reference in Europe, will take place from 15 to 17 January 2013 at the Centre de Congrès et du Parc des Expositions d'Angers (Angers' Exhibition Centre), in western France.

The international trade fair is expected to host 600 exhibitors and attract 20,000 visitors to its symposiums, conferences and workshops, where the main topic discussed will be water management.

Over the past 25 years, SIVAL has become the event of reference for the key plant sectors, including vegetable farming, fruit farming, wine growing, cider growing and seed production. The trade show is the only event of its kind in Europe for the market-gardening and vegetable sectors and, therefore, is set to continue asserting its international standing in January 2013.

From 15 to 17 January, next year, approximately 600 exhibitors will display equipment and techniques devoted to plant production at the Exhibition Centre in Angers (western France). SIVAL will take place as part of Plants Week 2013, during which Angers will play host to a range of events in the plant industry between 14 and 20 January 2013.

While sustainable farming has previously taken centre stage at SIVAL events, water management will be in the spotlight across the conferences, symposiums and workshops at SIVAL 2013.

Water has become a key issue in farming, as it simultaneously involves economic, environmental and social issues. The trade show will tackle such crucial topics as reducing waste, preserving resources, integrating plant production within the water cycle, and preserving the social image of farming with regard to water.

For the past 25 years, SIVAL has sought to anticipate trends. SIVAL 2013 will bring attention to innovations showcased by its exhibitors, while fostering dialogue about technological progress in the plant sector. Innovations will also be highlighted through the SIVAL D'OR competition and the Agriculture Opportunities Forum, which will reward the best innovations in equipment, products and services on display at SIVAL 2013.

Speeches and meetings organised by VEGEPOLYS, the cluster of hi-tech excellence for the plant industry, will also take place during SIVAL 2013. The VEGEPOLYS Symposium will take place on 15 January in the Maine Hall at 4.00pm. This conference will explore developments in international R&D in future plant varieties, regulation strategies in water provision, and ways of organising farming to optimise water management.

Additionally, the VEGEPOLYS Roundtable will be held on 16 January in the Maine Hall at 2.00pm. This round table will focus on innovative solutions that can optimise water management in farming, with the use of certain technologies and tools.

As a key trade show for the sector, SIVAL has a major part to play in raising awareness of the VEGEPOLYS plant-sector cluster of excellence beyond France's borders. Accordingly, SIVAL will use the 2013 trade fair to assert its European and international standing.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

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“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

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.
