CEA – official website www.cea.fr - is a French government -funded research organization involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.

CEA will participate to NFFA-Europe project with the Laboratoire d'Électronique de Technologie de l'Information (CEA-LETI) – official website www-leti.cea.fr - and the Laboratoire Léon Brillouin (LLB) official website www-llb.cea.fr.

CEA-LETI is located in Grenoble in the vicinity of ESRF and ILL. It is one of the major European research centers for applied electronics and nanoelectronics and part of MINATEC® (European center of excellence in micro and nanotechnologies). It is also active member of the "National Network of Large Technological Facilities for Basic Technological Research" and benefits from different platforms within MINATEC® as the Nanocharacterisation platform.

LLB is the French Neutron Scattering Research Infrastructure jointly supported by the CNRS and the CEA; it is devoted to the study of condensed matter by thermal neutron scattering. Twenty one neutron scattering and imaging instruments, running simultaneously are offered to the academic and industrial users. The LLB comprises about 110 people (+ 60 on the reactor) ensuring training and education, instruments and methodology development, access to users and research activities.

CEA role in NFFA-Europe:

CEA provides access to Characterisation

CEA contributes to Joint Research on Advanced Nano-object Transfer and Positioning
