Fundamental Research Division
The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
Galvanizing and strengthening the continuum between research and industry within CEA: such is the meaning of the joint program between the DRF and the Technological Research Division (DRT). The idea is to mobilize tandems of researchers in both fundamental and applied science, to work hand in hand to overcome technological barriers and move towards promising breakthroughs. This "scientific melting pot" can only strengthen the CEA's participation in future emerging technologies.
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.
