Fusion research benefits society (4/4)

Developing fusion science, engineering and technology to a point where fusion energy can be supplied to the grid is one of the most exciting challenges of the 21st century, and potentially one of the most rewarding.

Newsline has been featuring a series of videos that highlight the small and large advances that are being made daily. Improvements in industrial processes, new materials, innovative remote handling technologies, computer modelling techniques ... these products of fusion R&D at the cutting edge of science and technology are not only benefitting the fusion development effort, but also society at large through spinoff technologies.

In the last of this series of videos produced by the European Commission we're taken to England, where remote handling techniques that were developed specifically for the JET Tokamak are successfully applied to the domains of high-energy physics, space, nuclear decommissioning and medical products by the award-winning spin-off company Oxford Technologies Limited.

Another instance where funding of research and development creates successful spin-off businesses ...
