Fusion energy research and development of the Association Euratom-Tekesin is
fully integrated in the Euratom Fusion Programme in the FP7. The emphasis of
the Finnish programme is in technology R&D for ITER construction and systems
and in the leading European fusion experiments at JET (Joint European Torus).
The objective is a high level scientific and technological contribution to
Euratom Programme and ITER in close collaboration with Finnish industry. The
research unit of the Tekes Association consists of the teams from VTT, Aalto
University, Tampere and Lappeenranta Unversity of Technology and University of
Helsinki. In addition, several industrial companies are involved.
The Annual Seminar summarises the recent research and development work and
covers ITER technology with emphasis in remote handing system for ITER
divertor maintenance, advanced welding tools and the new results from JET and
AUG experiments. Invited speaker is Dr. Gianfranco Federici from Fusion for
Energy (F4E) who will present the European strategy for the starting Power
Plant Physics and Technology (3PT) work in EFDA. Dr. Federici has a strong
background in ITER technology and is at the moment he is seconded to EDFA CSU
Garching to lead the European work on Demo and power plant conceptual design.
Topics include ITER technology and Finnish strategies, plasma-materials
issues, European fusion experiments, materials modelling and strategies for
Demo reactor design.
