While Europe and certain Asian countries are announcing ambitious hydrogen
plans, Symbio – a hydrogen fuel cell systems supplier and subsidiary of Michelin and Faurecia
– and CEA, committed to the research and development of hydrogen technologies, are
strengthening their historic relationship by signing a framework collaboration agreement. Aim:
to accelerate the industrialisation of competitive hydrogen fuel cell systems on a world scale for
the energy transition of transport.

We live in a world of matter – because matter overtook antimatter, though they were both created in equal amounts by the Big Bang when our universe began. As featured on the cover of Nature on 16 April 2020, neutrinos and the associated antimatter particles, antineutrinos, are reported to have a high likelihood of differing behaviour that offers a promising path to explaining the asymmetry between matter and antimatter.

How is the magnetic field generated inside the Sun? By which mechanisms does it create solar spots and eruptions of magnetised clouds and particles? To find out, the European consortium Wholesun, coordinated by the CEA, is developing numerical models of the star in its entirety using the most powerful supercomputers. The numerical models will be used in combination with observations from Solar Orbiter, an ESA satellite launched on 10 February 2020.
