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.
