ALCEN

Advanced technology at the service of innovation

ALCEN

Ambition

ALCEN works in 5 fields:

  • Defence & Security
  • Energy
  • Medical & Healthcare
  • Aeronautics and Space
  • Large Scientific Instruments

ALCEN's ambition is to establish an ongoing policy of innovation applied first and foremost to its own products and services.

To do this, it is developing a particularly extensive in-house technological base. It works closely with research centres, systematically transfers technological developments and feedback from one field to the others and  develops its technologies in specialist laboratories organised around a limited number of top experts.

ALCEN constructs an original and comprehensive technological model that benefits from incredible productivity.

Organisation

ALCEN favours setting up subsidiaries for its activities in units focused on one technology.

ALCEN has put in place a method of governance and develops proven expertise in management of its subsidiaries encouraging genuine internal synergy.

This method of organisation is, along with technological differentiation, the key to its success.

Partnerships

ALCEN has a large number of laboratories working on a range of technologies. In order to make its ambitions compatible with its means, it has also developed collaboration expertise with external research centres. Thus, over the years, it has forged links with the CEA Military Applications Division (DAM), the CEA Technological Research Division (DRT), the CEA Fundamental Research Division (DRF), CNRS laboratories, Ifremer, the BRGM (French Geological Survey) and ONERA (the French Aerospace Lab), and with schools and universities.

As part of its partnership approach, it favours "applied" research, i.e. research on a specific product from the outset.

It is part of ALCEN's culture to use the technological knowledge acquired in the partnership to fields other than those initially chosen.

Connaissance des Énergies [Knowledge of Energies]: An educational resource on energy

One ambition: to foster knowledge pertaining to energy

Connaissance des Énergies publishes news, educational content or articles on a daily basis, striving for clarity, relevance and accessibility.

Its values include neutrality, clarity and the will to educate

In its writings, Connaissance des Énergies relies upon its Committee of Experts, who validate the entirety of the educational content before publication. Renowned for their knowledge of different types of energies (fossil, renewable, nuclear…) or related issues (geopolitics, economy…), the Experts on this committee are a guarantee to the quality of the information disseminated.
