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.

The ALCEN Corporate Foundation

Ambition: to raise awareness and knowledge of energies

Energy is a vital issue for the balance of the world. So the relevant decisions taken are all the more critical because they will have long term effects. Informing the public successfully can help to influence decisions at the right moment.
The Foundation created at the initiative of ALCEN aims to enhance the general public's knowledge of energies. It is a non-profit-making organisation, which chooses and publishes relevant information on energies, whatever they may be. It has a desire to provide education and access to as many people as possible. In this respect, it differs from a research centre and, in essence, it is free of any commercial or political dimension.

Its core values are neutrality, clarity and teaching

In its work, the Foundation relies on the Expert Committee, which validates all teaching content prior to publication. Recognised for their knowledge of the different types of energy (oil, renewable, nuclear, etc.) or the related issues (geopolitics, economics, etc.), the experts ensure the quality of the information circulated and protect the principle of neutrality and objectivity.

The ALCEN Corporate Foundation publishes the website
