This Yearbook summarises the 2021 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; (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, Comatec Oy, CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd., EOS Finland Oy, Fortum Power and Heat Ltd., Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology, Luvata Ltd., Tampere University, 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, advanced computing, materials research, plasma-facing components and remote maintenance.

F4E projects in 2021 focused on the development of the High Level Control System subsystems for ITER Remote Handling System and on testing of digivalve system for ITER remote handling.

EUROfusion supports post-graduate training through the Education work package that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 38 PhD students in FinnFusion member organizations. In addition, one EUROfusion post-doctoral research fellowship was running in 2021.

The FinnFusion annual seminar in 2021 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
