UBIFRANCE showcases over 100 French leaders in rail at InnoTrans 2014

23.05.2014

UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present an array of leading companies at the InnoTrans trade show, in Berlin (Germany), from 23 to 26 September 2014. More than 100 French companies will be exhibiting on the 1,200m² French Pavilion (Halls 26b, 11.2, and 3.2). This pavilion will be held in partnership with Fer de France, and co-sponsored by CENTRALP, SCOMA, and Leroy Automation. A further 80 companies will be exhibiting on individual stands at the trade show.

InnoTrans, now in its 10th year, is the leading international trade show for the railway industry and, more particularly, for technology and engineering in the rail sector. The trade fair is an excellent platform to promote leading French companies in the sector and will take place between 23 and 26 September of this year in the German capital.

In 2014, the number of exhibitors on the French Pavilion will represent an 11% increase on 2013. The 1,200m² French Pavilion (Halls 26b, 11.2, and 3.2) will be sponsored by Fer de France, the Inter-professional Association for France’s railway industry, as well as three of the exhibitors on the pavilion — CENTRALP, a specialist in embedded software and electronics; SCOMA, a designer and manufacturer of safety parts; and, finally, Leroy Automation, an expert in rail automation.

Fer de France was founded in 2012 with the aim of uniting all public- and private-sector players across the rail industry in France, from engineering companies, industrialists and rail-infrastructure managers to planning agencies, passenger/ freight carriers, and institutional bodies. Members of Fer de France include Alstom, Eurotunnel, the French Transport Ministry and SNCF, France's national state-owned railway company.

Fer de France’s turnover is estimated at over €30 billion, which sustains more than 340,000 jobs. Since 24 September 2013, Fer de France has been chaired by Pierre Mongin, who is also Chairman and Managing Director of RATP, the operator for urban-transport services across Paris and its region.

Seven regions of France will be represented on the French Pavilion at InnoTrans — Alsace, Burgundy, the Centre region, Midi-Pyrénées, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Pays de la Loire, and Picardy — together with the Alsace Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCI), the Burgundy CCI and the Promotional Agency for the Centre region. Representatives of several high-tech clusters of excellence, including Northern France Rail, Neopolia Rail, Mecateam Cluster and Mipyrail, will also be present.

The equipment displayed on the French Pavilion will cover all categories in the sector: car layout, infrastructure, on-board embedded-electronics systems, technologies and solutions for passenger information and ticketing, public-transport companies, rail testing and engineering, rolling-stock units, and mechanical components for rolling-stock.

Thanks to its proven expertise and the ability to innovate of French sector players, France’s rail industry is widely acknowledged internationally. In Europe, the French railway sector ranks second only to Germany, with 1,500 businesses and a turnover in excess of €4 billion, one quarter of which comes from exports.

Developed in partnership with Fer de France, the www.french-rail-industry.com English-language website is a promotional portal covering every aspect of the French rail sector and listing the major events that member entities are due to attend over the course of the year.

A specific InnoTrans tab leads to the list of exhibitors on the French Pavilion, at the trade fair, complete with the precise location of their stands. The website also features a showcase of French players in the sector, which includes useful information for non-French buyers about each company as well as a dedicated contact section, making it easy to get in touch with the companies directly.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
