The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
The European project VERIFY, coordinated by the CEA, aims to provide the European Commission with a system to monitor greenhouse gas emissions declarations submitted by each country under the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change.
Scientists have performed a thorough analysis of promising silicon-based electrode technology with regard to Li-ion battery decay in the course of charge/discharge cycles. Oversaw by the CEA, this project was carried out through a balanced partnership between three academic and as many industry partners.
Using optical rather than electrical technology to write to MRAM magnetic storage media would unlock a thousandfold speed increase and slash power consumption by a factor of 100. Spice aims to tackle this challenge and promote the use of non-volatile memory near processor cores. A computing revolution in perspective...
Based on the study of two hundred poisonous animals, the European project VENOMICS managed to reproduce a bank of 3,616 “natural” toxins compatible with high throughput screening. VENOMICS demonstrated that animal toxins are hundred times more effective in identifying drug candidates than the usual banks of artificial molecules.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
