SIVAL increases floor space for crop industry in 2014

SIVAL, a leading European trade show for the crop-production sector, will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 at the Angers Exhibition Ground (Western France). The addition of 1,000m² of surface area at this year’s event will allow approximately 600 exhibitors to showcase a comprehensive range of equipment, agricultural supplies and services to more than 20,000 visitors.

Organized by Angers Expo Congrès for the past 25 years, SIVAL takes place in Angers (North-Western France), at the heart of the leading crop-production region. The SIVAL trade show will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 as part of Plants Week 2014, which brings together VégéConso, VEGEPOLYS Symposium and new event ITEIPMAI/ASTREDHOR.

As a landmark European trade show, SIVAL has embarked upon international expansion and, in cooperation with its partner UBIFRANCE, has invited foreign delegations of purchasers, sector managers, operating managers etc. – predominantly from Algeria, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom – to take part in the 2014 event.

SIVAL has also recently signed an international business agreement via the European Enterprise Network (EEN). Accordingly, exhibitors and visitors alike may now set up meetings with potential qualified partners before the trade show.

Each year, the SIVAL Organising Committee punctuates the three days of the trade show with symposiums and technical discussions on a range of subjects. Some of the themes on the agenda for the 2014 event include ‘Management of the vine's hydric regime’ (Euroviti Symposium), ‘Stimulation of the plant's defences in vegetable crops. Results of the Defileg project’ (CTIFL Légumes technical discussion), ‘Competition distortions and extra-regulatory requirements in the European and international trade of Fruits and Vegetables’ (Coop de France Conference) and ‘The keys to a successful organic arboriculture: innovative solutions and search for alternatives’ (Regional Chamber of Agriculture).

The high point of the trade show will be the VEGEPOLYS Symposium entitled ‘The protection of tomorrow's pip-fruit orchard: French and international avenues of action for pre- and post-harvest’, which will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 14 January.

SIVAL is the only French trade show that caters to the entire crop-production industry, with 600 exhibitors (10% of them from outside France), representing 1,500 brands. As the leading event for fruit and vegetable production, particularly with regard to the representation of seed producers, plant suppliers and nursery owners, SIVAL welcomes more than 20,000 professionals each year.

Im Focus: Space observation with radar to secure Germany's space infrastructure

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.

The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
