AEROMART’s international dimension takes off

AEROMART, the international business convention for the aerospace industry, will be held for the sixth time on 29 and 30 November 2006 in Toulouse (in south-west France).

The event, which is being held in partnership with the aerospace competitiveness cluster known as Aerospace Valley, is increasing its international dimension, with increased participation from British and Italian companies, among others.

AEROMART’s pre-programmed business meetings bring decision makers from the whole aerospace industry to Toulouse. As of 20 September 2006, 400 companies from 28 countries were already registered for the event. This year, there will be an increased presence of major European manufacturers, with more than 30 British companies registered and 25 from Italy, as well as a strong presence from Germany and Spain. There will also be participants from the Americas (USA, Canada, Mexico and Brazil) and from Asia (China, South Korea). Indian and Russian delegations have also registered for the first time, each made up of 10 companies.

The leading international prime contractors have reregistered for the event, including Airbus, Alcatel Alenia Space, ATR, AVIC, Boeing, Bombardier, CNES, Dassault, EADS Astrium, Embraer, Finmeccanica (with its subsidiaries Augusta, Aermaccchi, Alenia Aeronautica Spazio and Piaggio Aero) and Rolls Royce.

The business meetings are designed to help companies make contacts with prime contractors and other subcontractors, with a view to forming technical or commercial partnerships. The advantage of the business meeting format is that companies can organise meetings in a defined time-frame and at a low cost. Furthermore, AEROMART will hold technical workshops dealing with strategy, business, technology transfer and innovation. Between five and ten of these workshops will be organised by the heads of Aerospace Valley’s Strategic Business Unit (Domaine d’Activités Stratégiques – DAS).

AEROMART is now considered an event of economic interest by the main European aerospace-industry associations (GIFAS, BDLI, SBAC, AIAD, etc.) and is recognised by the US Foreign Trade Department (through the US Embassy). The event confirms the leading international position of the Midi-Pyrénées region of south-west France, which has 50,000 jobs in the aerospace sector as well as training and research facilities that are unique in France.

AEROMART and FTPB are organising a press trip to the event, which will include meetings with companies at the business convention, participation in the workshops and debates (including ‘China and India: emerging aerospace nations’), and visits to aerospace companies in the Midi-Pyrénées region. Further details are available upon request from Ms Kate Ambler, Press Officer, at FTPB.


AEROMART is organised by Midi-Pyrenees Expansion (the regional development agency of the Midi-Pyrenees region of south-west France) and the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and is funded by the Midi-Pyrenees Regional Council, the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce & Industry, the Haute-Garonne Departmental Council and the Greater Toulouse Conurbation Community.

BCI, a leading European promoter of business conventions, is in charge of organising and marketing the event, which will be held on 29 and 30 November 2006 in Toulouse at the Parc des Expositions.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Wundermaterial Graphen: Gewölbt wie das Polster eines Chesterfield-Sofas

Graphen besitzt extreme Eigenschaften und ist vielseitig verwendbar. Mit einem Trick lassen sich sogar die Spins im Graphen kontrollieren. Dies gelang einem HZB-Team schon vor einiger Zeit: Die Physiker haben dafür eine Lage Graphen auf einem Nickelsubstrat aufgebracht und Goldatome dazwischen eingeschleust. Im Fachblatt 2D Materials zeigen sie nun, warum dies sich derartig stark auf die Spins auswirkt. Graphen kommt so auch als Material für künftige Informationstechnologien infrage, die auf der Verarbeitung von Spins als Informationseinheiten basieren.

Graphen ist wohl die exotischste Form von Kohlenstoff: Alle Atome sind untereinander nur in der Ebene verbunden und bilden ein Netz mit sechseckigen Maschen,...
