European Fusion Programme has entered a new era which will be dominated by the
ITER construction. Procurements, design and R&D for ITER construction require
financial and human resources more than was anticipated. Fusion for Energy
(F4E) estimates that a huge amount of R&D is needed during the next ten years.
This is a real challenge but also opportunity for the European and Finnish
fusion community and industry.
This seminar provides forum for F4E and ITER to present their future
procurement activities and needs. Representatives of industry will discuss
their interests and questions with F4E and ITER. Seminar encourages
participants for networking and discussing on cooperation.
Meet the key persons and present your views on possible future actions and new
DAY 1 Remote and Robotic Handling
ITER and F4E plans on Remote Handling will be presented and discussed. The
ROViR laboratory with the DTP2 system will be visited and demonstrated. A plan
for ITER Vacuum Vessel Assembly Welding Development will be introduced.
Industry views on ITER Remote Handling and Robotics will be discussed.
DAY 2 Fusion Physics and Materials
The second day covers the the fusion physics and materials research under the
European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) by the Association Euratom-Tekes.
Registration time for the seminar is May 10-24, 2010. Please note that
