Our goal is to help manufacturers improve their agility, reactivity, performance and quality.

List, a CEA Tech institute, masters the technologies that support industry to produce in a more effective and sustainable way.

Our institute relies on scientific expertise that is unique in France considering our close collaboration with most industrial sectors.

Our research is expanding onto smart manufacturing emerging topics: modelling and simulation, knowledge engineering, data processing, vision, information and communication systems etc.

CEA Advanced Manufacturing


Industrial R&D partners can access our technology platforms to achieve goals like building a demonstrator system or prototype or doing test production runs. The industrial-grade equipment at the platforms closes the gap between testing and industrial scale-up.

Facilities include

  • Augmented and virtual reality: product design and simulation software, production equipment, and workstations
  • Non-destructive testing (NDT): modelling, simulation, and instrumentation (US, EC, CT) and new inspection systems (SHM) for new production methods (additive manufacturing)
  • Robotics and cobotics: versatile robotic components, cobotic systems (operator assistance, task-sharing)
  • Digital factory and Internet of Things (IoT): secure protocols, vision systems, HMI; model-driven engineering, knowledge engineering, runtime support

220 research engineers dedicate their time to six main domains of activity

  • Collaborative robotics
  • Virtual reality
  • Augmented reality
  • Non destructive testing
  • Instrumentation
  • Radioactivity metrology

Services include feasibility studies, prototype development, testing, security analysis, and competitive benchmarking.
