The tour provided an opportunity to learn more about the CEA’s position in the Paris-Saclay ecosystem, the organization’s missions and strengths in technological and industrial innovation, and the CEA’s role spearheading technology research in Europe under the EU Horizon 2020 program.

CEA LIST created several demonstrators to show the institute’s effectiveness transferring technology to industry and spurring the creation of new businesses.

Karine Gosse, CEA LIST Director, showed Messrs. Désir and Lidington the Terman TAO robot, developed for nuclear decommissioning purposes in partnership with Getinge-La Calhène. They also watched a demonstration of the Hercule load-carrying-assistance exoskeleton developed in partnership with RB3D.

Finally, the founders of startups M2M (non-destructive testing)  Diotasoft (augmented reality), and WiN MS (cabling diagnostics) talked about their valuable relationships with the CEA. The entrepreneurs each paired up with a CEA LIST research scientist to present the technical solutions their companies are now commercializing.
