CEA Tech’s regional branches in Nantes, Bordeaux, and Toulouse have been working hard since early January to build ties with the academic and business communities in their regions. All three regional branches quickly found office space. The branches are headed by Xavier Apolinarski (LIST), Serge Rimlinger (Liten), and Nicolas Sillon (Leti).
More than 80 CEA employees applied for positions at the new branch offices, and most of the positions (for technical experts) have been filled. A second wave of hiring is planned for September of this year, when the branch offices will start rolling out their technology transfer platforms. At the same time, the CEA reached an agreement with the French government on the criteria that will be used to assess this experimental program.
