Since it was established, the CEA has supported and contributed the companies’ effort for innovation by putting its expertise and technologies at their service. Hundreds of SMEs and major industrial groups have conducted their innovation programmes in partnership with the CEA, so why not you?
The CEA’s technological research activities are ISO 9001 certified.
Recognised scientific excellence
A large proportion of the CEA’s activity concerns research projects aimed ultimately at industrial applications. Working with the CEA gives you access to world-class scientific and technological knowledge.
Innovative and secure research
At the end of 2012, the CEA had a portfolio of around 4,700 active patent families. Working with the CEA gives you access to innovative and secure research.
State-of-the-art technological equipment
At its ten research centres, the CEA has multiple technology platforms opened to collaborations with companies.
List, a CEA Tech institute, has developed the first-ever industrial-scale reflectometry-based embedded early cable defect detection demonstrator system.
Leti and Liten, both CEA Tech institutes, developed the electronics and algorithms required to measure the internal temperature of a battery cell by estimating electrical impedance. The purpose of the solution is to detect the early signs of thermal runaway in embedded lithium-ion batteries.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently joined forces with France’s energy agency ADEME to assess the benefits combining electricity storage and renewable energy production could bring to micro-grids connected to the main grid on the island of Corsica.
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.
