ALCEN possesses a large number of laboratories working on different technologies. It has developed know-how for collaborating with outside research centers in order to make its ambitions and its resources compatible with each other. Thus, as the years have gone by, it has created close links especially with the CEA, Ifremer (etc) and also with schools and universities.
In its partnership approach, it privileges “applied” research, i.e. research intended for a product that has been specified from the very beginning.
Afterwards, its cultural habits are to apply any new technological knowledge acquired in the partnership to other applications that may be destined to other fields of activity.
