La Galerie des Solutions : A unique exhibition of low carbon solutions during COP21

Geoffroy THAUMIN - 01-déc.-2015 17:44:02
    From 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget, France   The Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) this December is intended to result in an international climate agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol. This agreement must be capable of driving forward the reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions so as to restrict the rise in the Earth’s mean temperature by the end of the century to 2°C above the pre-industrial level. Against this background, Reed Expositions France has been working with the General Secretariat of COP21 to organize the Galerie des Solutions [Solutions Gallery] from 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget. Intended to support the diplomatic negotiations, the Gallery will be an exhibition of low carbon solutions exclusively reserved for professionals, and its mission will be to demonstrate that solutions do exist and to accelerate their market uptake. Occupying an area of 10,000 m2, running for seven days, and accessible from the Blue Zone (COP negotiations zone), the Galerie des Solutions [Solutions Gallery] will present innovative solutions developed and applied by companies, industries or territories that are designed to reduce the impact of economic activities on the climate: equipment, technologies, new models of organization and reproducible best practices… Over twenty countries will be represented including: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan, Morocco, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, the United Kingdom,… More specifically, the Ivory Coast, one of the African countries most committed to climate questions, will have a strong presence through a stand presenting initiatives and projects in the country, a broadcast from the TV studio, and visits by numerous officials from the country. As host country, what France has to offer will take pride of place in a dedicated space at the heart of the exhibition. It is therefore planned to demonstrate solutions – including clean vehicles in a dedicated outdoor space – and to stage special events, such as themed days that are integrated into the schedule of COP21, broadcasts and interviews with companies in a TV studio (eg. daily transport programme with Fer de France), guided tours and site visits for UN delegations. Other highlights will be prestige events such as networking sessions in a dedicated lounge, business lunches, VIP receptions in the heart of Paris… It will also host the official awards ceremonies for two sets of awards. The first Climate Solutions Awards, which will carry the COP21 label. Organized by Orée, AdEME, C3D, Crédit Coopératif, Solutions COP21, the Shift Project and World Efficiency, these will provide recognition for innovative solutions put forward by French SMEs or major groups to reduce energy consumption, limit greenhouse gases and preserve resources. There will also be the ceremony for the international Green Building Solutions Awards, which will be presented for outstanding examples of sustainable construction (building, technical solutions or materials) undertaken in countries covered by Construction21 or in its partner countries. Over 20,000 professional visitors are expected: participants in COP21 (heads of state, ministers, UN delegations from 197 countries), professionals (private and public sector decision makers and specifiers, delegations invited by the organizers…) and representatives of the media (printed press, radio, television, blogs).   Official website : http://www.lagalerie-cop21.com/

Business France is set to arrive at the world’s largest BIO event in Philadelphia this year and will once again showcase the French know-how in the sector of biotechnology , continuing to assert its position among the group of major industry players worldwide. Nearly 75 companies and 35 partners (non- profit organizations ,research institutes, universities and clusters ..) will be on the national pavilion. This important mobilization demonstrates how the issue of this industry remains important in France. The sector is posting impressive results in recent years particularly the debut of Celletcis and DBV Technologies in the NASDAQ stock exchange. Additionally, the massive growth of the following companies have attracted substantial amount of foreign investors, such as the case of Adocia, 32M € (January 2015) of Erytech Pharma € 30M (November 2014), GENFIT: € 50M (June 2014) and € 21 million (December 2014) and Hybrigenics: € 4.6M (November 2014). These figures confirm that French companies are positioning themselves competitively in the global market.

Regarding the current 446 biotechnology companies in France, there’s a total turnover of 278 million euros in 2013, an increase from the 251 million euros from the year prior. In 2013, 55 new companies  (+12% from 2012) were created. For 2 years, France has placed innovation at the heart of its economic and industrial policy in the framework of the plan "Better to heal." Implementation of the new government in 2013, it aims to support the creation of innovative companies and research through an enabling environment and policy support strong: - Strong University research  policies and the principle of future investments - A structured ecosystem (competitiveness cluster, IHU (University Institute Hospitalo-) SATT (Technology Transfer Acceleration Companies), PRES (Pole of research and teaching) - A high-level research: Institut Pasteur Genopole, CNRS, CEA, Inserm ... - Favorable tax environment: status JEI (young innovative entrepreneurs), Research Tax Credit All these measures have enabled France to file 13,000 patents in 2014 and to strengthen its positions in Europe. As for the US market, the 2015 France Pavilion will once again be an opportunity for the French biotech actors to continue the offensive.

France shows the way to doing e-commerce !

martine.joly - 05-juin-2014 16:49:51
Interview : Alain CIMAZ, Retailing and Services Department Project Manager at Ubifrance We all use e-commerce (and some of us all of the time), but do we fully realize in our economic crystal balls what the virtual universe of the Internet can do for a business? France does, to the tune of €51,1billion in 2013.   With broadband internet feeding households like never before, this trend is accelerating, up 13.5% this past year, even while traditional sales outlets are declining. Naturally, French e-commerce is part of a European phenomenon: sophisticated, well-educated consumers shopping and comparing on-line, whether it is for train tickets, fashion items, books and downloaded films, not to mention concert tickets or even electronic products and vacations. In fact, France finds itself positioned right in the middle of more mature on-line markets such as the UK and Scandinavia, while catering to fast-growing cyber-markets in Southern Europe.   Impressive numbers – and then there’s Christmas! The typical cyber-consumer in France spends on average €1400 annually, with a choice spanning 138,000 merchandizing sites, clicking to satisfy 33.7 million purchasers, each one with his or her own very personalized criteria. This represents a 17% growth rate for the number of sites in 2013, fueled by a rise of 5% in on-line buyers last year. Christmas frenzy often spells financial success for many e-commerce sites. For France, December 2013 accounted for a whopping €10 billion   of the year’s total results.   The Best in Class go international 15% of French sites export, generating 10% of their sales internationally. The really successful sites, representing over €10 million   in turnover, are able to boost these international sales by up to 20% of their total turnover. For 2013, the champions are Vente Privée, with € 1,6 billion, Showroom Privé, €350 million, Sarenza at €150 million   and in 29 different countries, while Spartoo out-does them by €130 million in 20 countries throughout Europe.   Cross-channel strategies Traditional companies such as Darty, Auchan and even Air France have grasped the importance of developing interfaces with e-commerce, selling cross-channel, from virtual to POS (Place of Sale). Tourism is an especially heavy-hitter, with Opodo and Go Voyages receiving avid travelers. Even SNCF-Voyages is also getting into the trend with offers covering car rentals and hotels, not just trains, and not just trains in Europe! E-commerce allows companies to envision doing business in entirely refreshing and international ways.   In B to B, the office supplies segment is active, with Bruneau and Viking modeling their entire business on-line, a lesson not lost on Manutan for its equipment.   The rules to play by With smart-phones now in every pocket, French companies are alert to adapting to international opportunities: respecting local-country consumer legislation, marketing with multi-lingual sites, regularly upgrading to be ergonomic, enriching their offers constantly. The usual rate of transformation from visit to virtual shopping cart is 2.5%; so New Age merchants must be quick to adapt to this new breed of impatient, demanding clientele. The e-consumer wants easy, practical and totally secure payment solutions ranging from credit card to Paypal. They also expect EU legislation on profiling and reimbursements to be strictly adhered to by the e-commerce site.   Up and coming events where Ubifrance can leverage exhibition opportunities for French e-commerce companies will be in Milan on May 20 th , in the UK and Ireland, from September 16 – 18 th , followed by San Paolo, October 6 – 7 th , with BtoB meetings dedicated to private sales.     For Further information about French companies in the e-commerce Sector, news technologies, innovation and services :   > Electronics and IT   > Telecommunications and Space   > Trade and distribution   > Services   > Audiovisual content, Multimedia
