CEA is active internationally in a variety of areas: scientific and technical cooperation, sovereign missions, support for French nuclear industry and European community.
The CEA has positioned itself as a key player in building the European research area through its involvement and recognition in numerous European research initiatives and bodies.
The CEA provides the public authorities and the industry with the expertise and innovation needed to develop improved nuclear power generation systems.
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, low carbon energies (nuclear and renewable energies), technological research for industry, fundamental research in the physical sciences and life sciences.
As hydrogen cars do not emit greenhouse gases, developing them is an efficient tool for the EU to decrease its emissions. However, their high prices hamper widespread usage. To tackle this issue, the H2020 project COPERNIC contributed to drastically decreasing the cost and increasing the performance of hydrogen storage tanks for cars, helping to make hydrogen cars a more viable and competitive option.
As moving across the European Union is encouraged for persons and goods, finding the smartest, most efficient and eco-friendly route can be complicated. To meet this challenge, the European project BONVOYAGE has set up a platform optimising multimodal door-to-door transport of passengers and goods.
Increasing numbers of medicines are molecules that are of biological origin. Unfortunately, such medicines can induce an undesirable response from the immune system. How can we measure such a response? What mechanisms are governing it? Answers to such questions have been provided by the ambitious European Project Abirisk, supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative
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.
