Frédéric Schuster
CEA, France

Director of the Cross-Disciplinary Program on Material Science & Engineering at CEA, France

Since 2006, Frederic Schuster has been the Director of the Cross-Disciplinary Program on Material Science & Engineering at CEA. He previously held the position of deputy director of the Institute for Renewable Energies (CEA/Liten) from 2003 to 2006. In parallel, he initiated and managed the European program Nanosafe on risk management in the field of nanotechnology from 2005 to 2010 and continued to develop a multidisciplinary approach in partnership with Canada, Japan and the US on this issue. He founded the International Conference NANOSAFE (every two years in Minatec, Grenoble, since 2008) on the safe production and use of nanomaterials. He is also the founder of the IMPACT International Chair on Accelerated Discovery of Materials and Emerging Processes at the National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology and University of Paris-Saclay. He is also the chairman of the additive manufacturing and circular economy commissions within the French Society of Metallurgy and Materials.
Since June 2022 he is co-director (with CNRS) of the French national initiative on accelerated discovery of materials, the national program DIADEM (DIscovery Acceleration for the Deployment of Emerging Materials).
Frederic Schuster is a CEA international expert in the field of materials science and engineering and especially in surface technology. For 8 years he was in charge of the CEA surface engineering laboratory at CEA Grenoble. Before his experience with CEA, he began his career in industry as manager of surface treatment department in the Arcelor-Mittal group, where he helped industrialize PVD technologies for steel surface functionalization.
Frederic Schuster is graduated from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse. He received an award from the Institute in 1990 for his PhD work on MOCVD technology. He was awarded the RIST prize (young researcher) by the French Society of Metallurgy and Materials for his technology transfer achievements in the industry. In 2018, he received the Grand Award for technological innovation from the French Society for Nuclear Energy for his work on Hipims PVD coatings for Enhanced Accident Tolerant Fuels. He is the author of several patents on surface engineering, nanomaterials, and 3D printing and has published numerous articles.
