The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) is a key player in research, development and innovation in four main areas: defence and security, nuclear and renewable energies, technological research for industry, fundamental research in the physical sciences and life sciences.
Efficient non-intrusive inspection (NII) of containerised freight is critical for customs, as freight containers are potential means of smuggling, illegal immigration or even trafficking nuclear material and chemical warfare agents. A single NII technology cannot cope with all of these different threats. The C-BORD project’s objective is to address them all and enable customs to deploy comprehensive cost-effective solutions for the NII of containers in order to protect EU sea and land borders.
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.
