On September 17, the jury for Societal Resilience Trophies of the French High Committee for Civil Defence (HCFDC) awarded to the team of Laurent Bellanger (CEA-IBITECS) the price of technological innovation for the development of the diagnostic test for Ebola virus disease, named Ebola eZYSCREEN®.
This team ensured the operational development of a simple, inexpensive, quick test, usable "at the bedside", on the field, without laboratory equipment or electricity source. The work has been done in three months, in the heart of the Ebola crisis in 2014. Awarded by the French High Committee for Civil Defense, these trophies aim to reward every 2 years the best actions and public or private initiatives contributing to improving societal resilience, security, protection of the populations and business continuity, in front of the major risks and threats.
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.
