From research to industry
The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) is a key player in research, development and innovation.
Discover the main research areas on which the CEA works.
Find the latest scientific and institutional news of the CEA.
The CEA publishes various scientific and technical periodicals and videos. Through them, you can discover the CEA’s major research topics and the latest technological innovations produced by its laboratories.
The CEA Research News is a newsletter bringing to your knowledge the most impacting scientific and societal advances and impacts enabled by major European research projects carried by CEA and which are covering the main priorities of the European Union.
Since its creation CEA has been involved in biology and health research and has become a recognised player in technological innovations and their integration. It can thus legitimately position itself as a major player in the field.
For thirty years, the interest shown in quantum technologies has constantly grown. Europe is investing heavily in developing them and the CEA teams are playing a full role in this.
Discover the main research areas on which the CEA is working.
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.
La sécurité est une des priorités de l’Union européenne. Les acteurs de la R&D s’organisent pour être à l’écoute des besoins des équipes de secours et des forces de sécurité. Le programme Seren, dont la quatrième édition est en cours, vise à mettre en relation ces deux mondes professionnels en vue de bâtir des projets de recherche pertinents dans le cadre de H2020.
Inspex is a mobile detection device that can be attached to a white cane to help visually impaired individuals locate obstacles more effectively, in three dimensions. The technologies developed for this project could find applications in many areas, including smart homes, drones and factories of the future.
Tritium, a hydrogen isotope produced or used at civil and military nuclear facilities, is a research challenge particularly in the energy sector. TRANSversal Actions for Tritium (Transat) is a multidisciplinary project that aims to improve knowledge of tritium management in fission and fusion facilities.
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.
