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....
Transcutaneous neurostimulation patch
Sublimed aims to transform the lives of patients who live with chronic pain via a flexible, discreet, transcutaneous, neuro-stimulation patch. Commercialisation of the product is scheduled in 2016.Transcutaneous
neurostimulation has been used for over 30 years in the treatment of
chronic pain, most notably for neuralgic and back pain. However, the
generator/cables needed for this treatment are cumbersome and
impractical meaning that 20-40% of patients reject the treatment.Sublimed replaces traditional equipment with technological solutions based on 5 CEA patents:
technological advances should help the adoption of such treatment as
well as optimize its efficiency. The pain treatment centre of Grenoble
University Hospital and leading pain specialists are involved in the
development of this project.
