Large-scale scientific instruments

CNIM offers a wide range of equipment and services to help national and international organizations meet the scientific challenges of the future. The Group is able to capitalize on its contribution to the Laser Mégajoule project, its industrial resources and its geographical location near Cadarache, France, one of Europe’s leading centers for energy research and development. In particular, CNIM and Bertin have pooled their resources to provide engineering support for the ITER Organization and the European Union’s Fusion for Energy (F4E) agency.
