The ITER Business Forum (here in Manosque in 2011) provides a unique opportunity to make business contacts with European companies. The 2013 edition will be held in Toulon on 21-22 March.

After the December 2011 edition of the ITER Business Forum, which gathered more than 600 participants from 20 European countries, the 2013 edition (IBF/13) will take place in Toulon, France, on 21-22 March with the participation and support of the ITER Organization and the European Domestic Agency, Fusion for Energy (F4E). This event has been organized by the F4E Industrial Liaison Officers Network, with the support of the Toulon Tourist Office and the Var Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Between 600 and 800 participants are expected.

The aims of IBF/13 are to provide European industry with updated information on ITER status, procurement procedures and forthcoming calls for tenders; to improve mutual knowledge between the ITER project and industrialists; to facilitate industrial partnerships for ITER within—and outside of—Europe; to facilitate contacts between fusion research laboratories and industry; and to facilitate the recruitment by industry, ITER and Euratom associations of young people trained in nuclear fusion technologies.

IBF/13 will feature an industrial conference with a plenary session and thematic workshops, one-to-one meetings scheduled online by participants, a poster session by trainees of EFDA program "Goal Oriented Training," a Welcome Reception, and a Gala Dinner for networking purposes.

Optional activities include a visit of the ITER site, a discovery tour of Toulon's economic potential, or sightseeing tours organized from 20-23 March.

Thematic workshops will consist of presentations by ITER Organization and F4E technical experts, as well as short presentations from ITER prime contractors or pre-qualified companies (Rank 1) from Europe (and also from Korea, India and the United States). These are aimed at facilitating contacts with potential partners or subcontractors at the European or international level.

IBF/13 provides a unique opportunity to make business contacts with European companies relating to the ITER project and, more largely, to your core business.

The complete program of the ITER Business Forum 2013 and online registration can be found at www.iterbusinessforum.com.  Please contact your national Industrial Liaison Officer (ILO) for any additional information.
