Foundation: 1945

Mission: Created in 1945 to implement a major political project - to develop all the applications arising from the atomic sciences - the CEA remains the instrument with which the public authorities have equipped themselves to conduct research presenting major strategic and societal challenges. As part of this mission, the CEA develops new scientific knowledge and transfers technological innovations to the industrial world. The historic mission entrusted to the CEA has irrigated several fields of research directly or indirectly linked to the atomic sciences. Today, nuclear power remains a central subject of study for the CEA. But to accomplish its mission, the organization has had to broaden the scope of its research in physics, chemistry and biology and develop new knowledge in microelectronics, materials and new energy technologies, for example.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
