ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international venture implemented by EU member states, the US, China, South Korea, Switzerland, Russia, Japan and India. It is described as the most ambitious scientific initiative in the world. The EU contribution to the ITER project is managed by F4E, i.e. Fusion for Energy – an organization of the European Union (EU). Its budget for 2021-2027 is 6 billion euros. Most of these funds will be allocated to activities related to ITER, a project that due to its scale generates a large demand for various products and services. It should be emphasized that the success of this venture depends on efficient and successful cooperation with industry and R&D organizations. It mainly focuses on building, producing and testing technical components for fusion reactors. Tender procedures announced for the needs of ITER are available to Polish companies and institutions that have the potential to carry out even the most complex tasks for this project. Poland @ ITER 2019 aims to show them the opportunities offered by such cooperation.
The Poland@ITER 2019 mission will last two days – October 17th and 18th, 2019. ITER and European Commission representatives will present perspectives of cooperation with Polish companies and institutions and will familiarize them with the organization’s tender procedures. The key part of the mission will be individual meetings of mission participants with F4E tender specialists and engineers from various technical departments of the project. On the second day of the event, they will have a unique opportunity to visit the ITER construction site. The mission will end with a discussion session on the calls and prospects of the Polish high-tech sector in the context of cooperation with ITER.
