Abstract

This Yearbook summarises the 2018 research and industry activities of the FinnFusion Consortium. The present emphasis of the FinnFusion programme isthe following: (i) Technology R&D for ITER construction and systems including industry contracts; (ii) Implementation of the Fusion Roadmap to the Realizationof Fusion Energy as a member of the EUROfusion Consortium with projects focusing on tokamak experiments and modelling; (iii) Creating concepts for thenext 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 ÅboAkademi 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. F4E projects in 2018 focused on system level design for ITER Remote HandlingConnector and remote diagnostics application software development. EUROfusion supports post-graduate training through the Education workpackage that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 12 PhD students in FinnFusion member organizations. In addition, three EUROfusion post-doctoral researchand engineering fellowships were running in 2018. The FinnFusion annual seminar in 2018 was organized by VTT in Espoo in June.
