The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission ranks first in Reuters’ Top 25 Global Innovators on government-funded science and technology institutions. Its activity in terms of patents received and quotation rates are highlighted among the main reasons for this ranking.
In overall, France ranks no less than 4 research institutions in this top 25: CNRS is 5th, Inserm is 10th and Institut Pasteur is 17th.
