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.
ENVIRONMENT | RADIOACTIVITY
An international consortium of scientists, including the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE - CEA/CNRS/UVSQ, Institut Pierre Simon Laplace, Université Paris-Saclay), used a new method to refine the map of caesium and plutonium radionuclide concentrations in soils in France and several neighbouring countries.
ENERGIES | RENEWABLE ENERGIES | HYDROGEN | FUEL CELLS
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.
MATTER ＆ THE UNIVERSE | CONTENT OF THE UNIVERSE | ORDINARY MATTER | PARTICLE PHYSICS
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.
CROSS-FUNCTIONAL DISCIPLINES | TECHNOLOGIES | ROBOTICS
Developed by a consortium from the European robotics field, RobMoSys is a cost-effective way of extending robot use to various industrial sectors including agri-foods, manufacturing, farming and transport.
HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | BRAIN | METHODOLOGIES FOR LIFE SCIENCES | MEDICAL IMAGING | MRI
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université , CEA and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
ENERGIES | NUCLEAR ENERGY | NUCLEAR SAFETY | SAFETY OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES | NUCLEAR REACTORS
Europe and China have combined their efforts to progress research into severe accidents in light-water reactors. Their work within the Alisa project is resulting in better understanding of potential core flooding and molten core cooling scenarios, inside and outside the vessel, as well as the behaviour of hydrogen according to reactor design.
HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | BIOTECHNOLOGY | DIAGNOSIS AND INNOVATIVE TREATMENT | NANOMEDICINE
REFINE is an European project aimed at developing a regulatory science framework for the risk/benefit assessment of new medicinal products and medical devices based on nanomedicine and biomaterials before clinical implementation.
TECHNOLOGIES | INNOVATION FOR INDUSTRY
CEA will be exhibiting 6 futuristic and advanced technologies and 4 startup in Las Vegas at CES 2020 and at CES Unveiled. This year's guideline? MOBILITY.
ENERGIES | RENEWABLE ENERGIES | NEW TECHNOLOGIES | HYDROGEN
On 8 October 2019, during the EARTO Innovation Awards in Brussels to recognise the best innovations of the year, the Smart Energy Hub and its rSOC technology (CEA/Sylfen) received first prize in the “Impact Expected” category.
ENERGIES | NUCLEAR ENERGY
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.
FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH | HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | BRAIN | NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES | DISEASES | TOOLS ＆ RESEARCH INSTRUMENTS
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.
HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | DEFENCE ＆ SECURITY | ENERGIES | NEW TECHNOLOGIES | ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
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.
EMBEDDED SYSTEMS | INTEGRATED CIRCUITS DESIGN | ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
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.
HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | NEW TECHNOLOGIES | SCIENCE ＆ SOCIETY
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.
ENERGIES | NUCLEAR FUSION | NUCLEAR ENERGY
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.
