This week, Newsline puts the focus on industrial liaisons to mark the fact that the project is transitioning from the design to the manufacturing phase. In our featured video we introduce Jacques Farineau, the project's Senior Advisor for Industrial Matters. After a 24-year-long career at Airbus Industrie in Toulouse, Jacques has gained the kind of experience that is invaluable to ITER: working in a global enterprise that is based on international cooperation and work-sharing agreements.

We also report on Sabine Portier, the French Industry Liaison Officer (one of 13 industrial interfaces in Europe) and her Deputy Philippe Olivier who have recently found a home in the Agence Iter France premises at CEA-Cadarache.

Finally, this week ITER welcomed the German ITER Industry Forum DIIF on site.  More than 35 representatives from German companies came to Cadarache to be briefed by the various responsible officers and division heads of the ITER project and the procurement department of the European Domestic Agency in Barcelona. "It was rather like 'speed dating' with ITER," one participant remarked at the end of the day.
