    Abstract

    This Yearbook summarises the 2016 research and industry activities of the FinnFusion Consortium. The present emphasis of the FinnFusion programme is the following: (i) Technology R&D for ITER construction and systems including industry contracts; (ii) Implementation of the Fusion Roadmap to the Realization of Fusion Energy as a member of the EUROfusion Consortium with projects focusing on tokamak experiments and modelling; (iii) Creating concepts for the next generation fusion power plant DEMO in Europe. The members of FinnFusion are VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd., Aalto University, Fortum Power and Heat Ltd., Lappeenranta University of Technology, Tampere University of Technology, University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi University. FinnFusion participates in several EUROfusion work packages, the largest being experimental campaigns at JET and ASDEX Upgrade and related analyses, materials research, plasma-facing components and remote maintenance. A new research topic pursued in FinnFusion in 2016 is the Early Neutron Source work package, aiming at building a device to study hard neutron radiation damage to fusion materials. On the industry side, one of the very first EUROfusion industry tasks on DEMO remote maintenance was completed by Fortum in 2016. EUROfusion supports post-graduate training through the Education work package that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 12 PhD students in FinnFusion member organizations. In addition, four EUROfusion post-doctoral research and engineering fellowships were running in 2016. F4E projects in 2016 were related to the development of the diagnostics system for ITER (Remote Handling Connector) and computer assisted teleoperation. The FinnFusion annual seminar in 2016 was organised by LUT in Lappeenranta in May.
