Liten is a major European research institute and a driving force behind the development of the sustainable energy technologies of the future. The institute is spearheading the EU’s efforts to limit dependency on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in three key areas: renewable energy, energy efficiency/storage and development of materials.
Our platforms, sophisticated tools for industry & the scientific/technical infrastructure/expertise to overcome technological hurdles
Liten's research teams work across a vast portfolio of renewable energy technologies. Cutting-edge photovoltaic technologies are developed at INES, the French National centre for solar research and R&D with Hydrogen and Biomass activities being managed from the LITEN's main site in Grenoble, Rhone-Alpes.
“Radically improving energy efficiency will reduce the need for investment in energy infrastructure, cut fuel costs, increase competitiveness, lessen exposure to fuel price volatility, increase energy affordability for low-income households and cut local and global pollutants improving consumer welfare” Source OECD Energy report, 2014
From nanosecurity, nanocharacterisation,and anti-counterfeiting technology to the development of advanced materials and point of sale: a comprehensive offering.
Transverse activities help add value to our technology portfolio. An optimised modeling and characterisation model, for example, can help reduce time to market. Browse this section to find out more....

This year, the institute will show you their solutions for the future of mobility with KIWEE and ISORG.
Kiwee is a car sharing system that brings compact electric passenger vehicles to users either at dedicated pickup points or on a freefloating basis. Vehicles parked at a pickup point can be stacked like shopping carts and towed train-style for easy delivery by road to the pickup points where they are needed. A trained operator does the delivering; users drive individual cars only.
Kiwee is ideal for users in downtown and suburban areas seeking a non-polluting “first mile/last mile” solution for their public transportation or carpooling journeys. Kiwee is also suitable for other mobility needs, such as at airports or industrial facilities.
Because the vehicles can be stacked and towed, a single operator can deliver an entire “train” of vehicles, ensuring that pickup points are always fully stocked. Kiwee can deliver availability rates of 90% for high service quality.
The system was co-designed by Liten with the cooperation of List, CEA institutes, and other European partners (under the H2020 EC Research Program).
Providing “first-mile/last-mile” transportation between public transportation networks and users’ homes or places of work
Increasing transportation services in areas with low coverage by other modes of transportation
Offering a solution for activities that currently require individual vehicles, such as shopping or picking up parcels
A Liten startup, Isorg was founded in 2010 by a team of senior managers and technical experts from the high-tech and electronicsindustries. The company’s core technology successfully integrates printed photodiodes on different substrates to enable large-areaimage sensors for the smartphone, security markets and extended applications in medical X-ray imaging and non-destructive testing(NDT).Isorg is present in Grenoble, France (technology and application development), Limoges, France (manufacturing), and Asia (sales and application support). The company offers its customers a complete solution from a single provider.The company plans to leverage its strong know-how of sensor technology to become the leading provider of printed-electronicsbased optoelectronic systems and also complete large-area-imagesensor solutions for the markets the company serves.
ISORG'S SENSOR & MOBILITY
Isorg’s sensor system can be built on a plastic substrate, which means that the product can be shaped to facilitate integration into a variety of products. This makes it ideal for mobility applications that require authentication with a high degree of security. These include smartphones and mobile police scanners, automotive systems, ID verification for electric bike or scooter solutions, and more.
