Seven major European industrial vehicle manufacturers have already registered to attend SOLUTRANS 2011 – IVECO, DAF Trucks, MAN, MERCEDES-BENZ, RENAULT TRUCKS, SCANIA and VOLVO TRUCKS – as well as key semi-trailer and trailer manufacturers, vehicle body builders and equipment manufacturers.
Exhibitors and visitors that attended SOLUTRANS 2010 indicated that the trade show was a success, despite difficult economic conditions. SOLUTRANS 2011 is back this year to assert its position as a key trade event in the international calendar (the trade show will take place every two years).
SOLUTRANS stands out as an event that unites the entire transport profession and offers relevant responses to tomorrow’s economic, technological and environmental challenges.
As a central feature in the World Road and Urban Transport Week, SOLUTRANS includes a number of key highlights.
The Industrial Bodywork Prize will be awarded at SOLUTRANS for innovations in the improvement of vehicle bodywork performance. This covers environmental and financial concerns as well as user-friendliness.
The second Truck Industry Meeting, which will take place at SOLUTRANS 2011, will provide companies with the opportunity to raise their concerns on issues affecting the trucking sector.
SOLUTRANS will also host the Truck & Bus World Forum, which will look into and analyse the challenges facing urban transport
Additionally, visitors will be able to visit the Khub, which is a conferencing and multimedia area acting as a venue for dialogue around the theme of transport and the environment.
The Trucker Show will be another highlight at SOLUTRANS 2011: within the context of the trade fair, this event is a celebration of trucks and light commercial vehicles.
Overall, SOLUTRANS has been spurred on by the economic upturn in the road and urban-transport sector. A number of innovations are expected to be unveiled at SOLUTRANS 2011.
SOLUTRANS is a trade event for international transport solutions. SOLUTRANS 2011 will take place at the Parc des Expositions EUROEXPO exhibition centre in Lyons (France) from 29 November to 3 December 2011, between 9am and 6pm. (On Friday 2 December 2011, SOLUTRANS will close at 8pm.)For further information, please go to: www.solutrans.fr

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...
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...

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.
