The ITER Business Forum is being organized by the ILO (Industrial Liaison Officers) network with the support of ITER Organization, Fusion for Energy (F4E), ITER France, the Department for Industry (DGCIS), the Var Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Toulon Office of Tourism, Toulon Town Council, the Toulon Provence Mediterranean Community, the Conseil Général of Var and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region.

The aims of IBF/13 are:

  • to improve mutual knowledge between the ITER project and industrialists (better knowledge by ITER of industrial capacities and experience, better knowledge by industry of project needs and constraints)
  • to facilitate industrial partnerships within Europe and internationally (consortia to answer calls for tenders, partnerships with local companies)
  • to facilitate contacts between fusion research laboratories and industry
  • to facilitate recruitment by industry, ITER and Euratom Associations of young graduates trained in nuclear fusion technologies (EFDA Goal Oriented Training programme)
