An Industry Info Day will be organized on Tuesday 12th of September for identifying and showing upcoming requirements and business opportunities in fusion-relevant projects such as ITER, IFMIF-DONES, EUROFusion, DEMO, and other public or private initiatives. There will be specific talks on the most relevant fusion technologies and challenges, such as remote handling, machine assembly, plasma heating systems, and blankets and material technologies. In the second part of the Industry Info Day, information on the most promised private initiatives in magnetic and inertial fusion will be given, exploring new collaborative approaches between industry and research labs acting in the fusion ecosystem. Take a look at the full program below.

A specific Industry Info Day registration fee has been established. You can take advantage of your registration to also attend plenary talks in the morning and the industrial exhibition. It will be a great opportunity to meet the most relevant scientists, engineers, industry representatives, and exhibitors of the fusion community from all around the world.

Join us for this important event! We would be pleased to count on your participation.
