Speeding innovation for industry
News | Cross-functional disciplines
Several energy-related advances for the City of Grenoble, France were unveiled to the public as part of the CITY-Zen Days initiative. One of them is an innovative heating network. The prototype is currently under construction and the new network will round out France’s second-largest heating network.
Connecting Food and List, a CEA Tech institute, have joined forces to improve quality control in the food manufacturing industry. Their solution, which leverages blockchain technology, can certify the monitoring of products from the production line to the consumer’s refrigerator.
The Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, and the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, today announced plans for a new French-Australian collaboration between Australia’s first quantum computing company, Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Ltd (SQC), and the world leading French research and development organisation, the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (the CEA).
A testing platform based on the sensiNact software environment was developed under the FESTIVAL project. The platform provides access to data collected from a variety of experimental sources.
CEA Tech’s digital companion was selected in a call for projects to invent the solutions that will shape tomorrow’s hospitals. The first robots will be developed in conjunction with Nantes University Medical Center.
Pressure can enhance the performance of co-electrolysis without negatively affecting equipment lifespans. Researchers recently demonstrated the principle for the first time ever in a long-duration test.
Automotive equipment manufacturer Plastic Omnium is implementing a model-driven engineering (MDE) method leveraging Papyrus, an MDE environment developed by List, a CEA Tech institute.
For the first time ever, a 256-pixel active matrix was printed at the PICTIC platform at Liten, a CEA Tech institute. This is the first-ever system-level demonstrator and it confirms the potential of printed electronics for industrial-scale manufacturing to equip tomorrow’s high-tech devices.
List, a CEA Tech Institute, implemented homomorphic encryption technologies that enable “blind”—in other words, totally confidential—computation on data stored on remote servers. Several industrial applications have been developed using the technique.
A curved sensor that limits the number of lenses required in optical equipment was recently developed. The new sensor reduces the volume of camera modules by half, creating opportunities for the manufacturers of cameras, smartphones, and other optical systems.
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.
