Involvement in funding programmes, contribution to public policies through its scientific expertise, and development of major partnerships: the CEA has strengthened its European strategy over the past few years, making cooperation its watchword. Bertrand Bouchet, the CEA director of European Affairs, discusses the CEA’s position on Europe and the French presidency of the EU Council.
France is holding the presidency of the EU Council since 1 January to 30 June 2022. The CEA is ready and waiting to contribute to the success of this presidency, in line with the watchwords chosen to reflect this period: recovery, strength and a sense of belonging.
