The clock is ticking for the 2015 ITER Business Forum

The clock is ticking for the 2015 ITER Business Forum

On 25-27 March, Marseille will become Europe’s fusion business capital hosting the fourth edition of the ITER Business Forum (IBF) organised by Agence ITER France (AIF) in collaboration with the Industrial Liaison Officers (ILOs) Network of F4E, Marseille Tourist Office, the « Invest in Provence » Agency and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Marseille-Provence.

The aim of the event is to help participants find out how key ITER technologies and components are progressing, and help economic operators with a clear interest in fusion technology to understand how their services and expertise can be of service to the project. ITER International Organization together with six of the ITER Domestic Agencies will be elaborating on their procurement strategies and the contracts in the pipeline. F4E will be present with an army of contractors so as to offer a comprehensive overview of the state of play and of any future business opportunities.

A series of technical thematic sessions will complement the plenary sessions, offering insight on how the different components are coming along and what work and skills are still in demand. Companies already involved in the manufacturing process will be using this occasion to communicate their work and flag any subcontracting opportunities. In parallel, B2B meetings will be organised in order to help companies network and foster partnerships. The possibility to visit the ITER construction site in Cadarache and Airbus helicopters or Comex Nucleaire is also envisaged for those participants that wish to take a field trip.
