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....
Large format image sensors printed on plastic/glass
ISORG, which was created in 2010, transforms plastic and glass into interactive surfaces. Optical sensors built into printed organic electronics enable the movement of people or objects to be detected resulting in a low-cost, fully-functional material with huge commercial potentialISORG’s optical sensors are based on innovative materials developed using organic chemistry. These materials are applied as a liquid on glass or plastic by high-speed printing techniques. The cost of these image sensors (up to 32 x 38 cm, soon 60 x 60 cm) is highly competitive, resulting in optical performance similar to that of silicium.The technology is protected by a robust IP portfolio of 50 patents, held jointly by ISORG and the CEA. The first major clients of the start-up are industrial companies working in the fields of medical imaging and logistics. A wide variety of other applications are expected in the future including: Industry 4.0 sensors, internet-of-things applications, diagnostics, biometry etc.Based in Grenoble, ISORG also has representation in Asia. The start-up will have its own factory in Limoges from 2016, that will be financed by an initial fundraising activity that has generated 6 million euros of capital.Web : www.isorg.frContact : firstname.lastname@example.org
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
