Speeding innovation for industry
Resources and skills
Today’s materials must meet increasingly stringent specifications. Manufacturers are seeking materials offering a better performance, longer lifespans, and lower total cost of ownership. In some cases, researchers have no choice but to come up with totally new materials and processes capable of giving existing materials new properties and functions.
Powder metallurgy, multi-material assembly, and nanomaterials are just some of the solutions that CEA Tech institute Liten is investigating. This research will help manufacturers find alternatives to increasingly rare materials and respond to new regulations prohibiting use of certain rare or toxic materials.
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.
