Speeding innovation for industry
News | Cross-functional disciplines
The performance of systems used to identify volatile compounds has been enhanced substantially thanks to research conducted under the Essaim project. Improvements were made to both the sensors and the data acquisition and processing methods.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.
A capacitive plastic part prototype that meets the automotive industry’s requirements was recently developed in partnership with SE2D (Symbiose Engineering Design Development).
The EU Mobitrust project helped to develop more secure environments for the execution of critical applications on new mobile platforms.
With more than 60 startups created so far, Leti continues to help bring to market innovative devices and solutions, including in healthcare. For the second consecutive year, Leti offers a Medtech Entrepreneur-In-Residence Program. Through the first program, an IoT project for healthcare applications has been selected, involving a senior Medtech engineer and a clinician. The project is currently under incubation.
Manan Suri, who completed his Ph.D. at Leti listed for his invention of computer chips that mimic the workings of the human brain in the 2018 edition of MIT Technology Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35
A new hybrid polymer electrolyte technology with the capacity to enhance battery safety was developed for Solvay. The company has begun presenting the new technology to battery manufacturers.
The Epicool project is investigating the use of optics to cool epileptogenic areas in the brains of epilepsy patients resistant to other treatments. A prototype implantable device is currently being developed and will be miniaturized before animal testing begins.
PROTAVIC INTERNATIONAL, a subsidiary of PROTEX INTERNATIONAL, a manufacturer of high-added-value special industrial adhesives recognized for its investment in innovation, has begun manufacturing new products containing silver nanowires leveraging a technology successfully transferred to the manufacturer by the CEA.
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.
