Since it was established, the CEA has supported and contributed the companies’ effort for innovation by putting its expertise and technologies at their service.
In the Suppliers area, you will find the CEA’s procurement policy and the possibility to consult and respond to current calls for tenders.
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.
On September 17, 2019, during the IAEA General Conference in Vienna, CEA, EDF and Westinghouse Electric Company signed a framework agreement to explore potential cooperation on small modular reactor (SMR) development.
The Iseult project magnet being installed at Neurospin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a nominal magnetic field of 11.7 teslas (T) on July 18, 2019. This is a world record for a whole-body magnetic resonance imager (MRI) magnet, the culmination of years of R&D, at the forefront of innovation in the field of superconducting magnets.
While the development of artificial intelligence depended until recently on software modules installed on centralized IT networks and servers (the Cloud), its future will also be shaped locally. The multiplication of connected objects (Internet of Things or IoT) requires a decentralization of artificial intelligence.
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.
