Press release | Institutional
Friday 16 June, at a meeting following on from the renewal of the tri-party research agreement bringing together France’s three leading players in the nuclear industry, Jean-Bernard Lévy, EDF’s Chairman and CEO, and Daniel Verwaerde, Chairman of the CEA, reaffirmed their desire to consolidate the partnership between the two companies and broaden the scope of their collaboration, particularly for activities located on the Plateau de Saclay.
This move complements the valuable collaborative research already produced within the context of the Institut Tripartite, whose agreement was renewed in May 2017, by encouraging the development of digital technology in the nuclear industry and fostering an approach based on technological building blocks.
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.
