This week, many of you have read our article on the desire to expand in the Grand-Est region of Wallix, one of the French cybersecurity pioneers. Our article on microfluidic innovations at HP also caught your attention. Just like the 2020 edition of the Teratec Forum and its workshop, which is dedicated to the various qubit technologies in the competition to manufacture the first quantum processors.
Wallix, from Brittany to the Grand Est
Wallix is already well established in Brittany and now wants to build an industrial cybersecurity center in the Grand-Est. In the future, this project could be part of the national cyber campus project, which will be launched in September 2021 at a first location in La Défense and later at a second on the Satory plateau.
Microfluidics: HP wants to weigh up in pharmacy and medicine
On the occasion of its innovation summit, which took place online on October 15, the printing specialist HP highlighted its innovation in microfluidics. A skill that could open up the field of health and biotechnology further.
Quantum: Qubit technologies are exhibited in the Teratec forum
The 2020 edition of the Teratec Forum, which took place entirely online on October 13th and 14th, devoted an entire workshop to the presentation of the various qubit technologies that are competing to manufacture the first quantum processors. Good news: the French are very prominent in some of them. Overview.
Carbon nanotubes: from supercapacitors to batteries
Nawatechnologies is known for its carbon nanotube supercapacitors. These nanotubes could soon be used in lithium-ion battery electrodes to improve their performance and prepare for “all-solid” generations and beyond. In any case, this is what the promising results of the first prototypes suggest, says Pascal Boulanger, founder and technical director of the Aix en Provence company.
Bosch Rexroth is renewing its automation range
With the ctrlX automation platform, which consists of new hardware and software modules, Bosch Rexroth is renewing its automation components that are 15 years and older. This October 9 announcement has two goals: to promote the modularity and flexibility of the automation functions and to open up as many communication protocols as possible.
