ITER U.S. Business Forum 2019

In the south of France, the U.S. is working with 34 other countries—China, India, Japan, South Korea, Russia, and all of Europe—to create the first industrial-scale fusion energy device.

ITER’s challenging engineering specifications are driving innovation and expanding the industrial expertise of ITER Member companies. In the U.S., more than 600 contracts have already been placed in 44 states and DC.

This event will highlight upcoming opportunities for U.S. companies to compete for ITER contracts, both directly from the ITER Organization and from U.S. ITER or other ITER Members. In addition to a few brief presentations, it will offer time for one-on-one discussions to identify relevant U.S. companies and industry leaders with expertise to contribute to ITER.

The ITER Project is one of the most ambitious projects in human history: a multinational collaboration to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion energy.

As envisioned by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in 1985, it offers the promise of safe, clean, virtually unlimited energy “for the benefit of all mankind.”

In the near-term, it offers immediate benefits to Member companies through collaborative technology breakthroughs in electromagnetics, cryogenics, robotics, diagnostics, materials science, and many other disciplines.

We invite you to join us for this event to learn more.
