From January 11 to 14, 2021, the CEA will participate in the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) for the 7th consecutive year. For this 100% digital version, the CEA is supporting 3 startups spun off from its laboratories that have developed technological solutions in response to three major societal challenges: the energy transition, the digital transition and the medicine of the future.
The CEA and RIKEN HPC experts met in October 2020, for their bi-annual Plenary Workshop. The event, organized online over 3 days, was the opportunity of a waypoint regarding joint R&D efforts on the different topics of the CEA-RIKEN collaboration. Since the previous workshop in March, an Activity Report summarising 3 years of fruitful collaboration – 2017-2019 - was issued, and the momentum and liveliness of joint efforts remained intact.
