Abstract

This Yearbook summarises the 2023 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.

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 2023 focused on the development of 3D machine vision HLCS modules and GENROBOT, and the water hydraulic digital valve for ITER Remote Handling System.

EUROfusion supports post-graduate training through the Education work package that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 36 PhD students in FinnFusion member organizations. In addition, two EUROfusion Researcher and Engineering Grants were running in 2023.

The FinnFusion annual seminar in 2023 was organized jointly with the Swedish and Danish research units in Gothenburg in June.
