About half of the ITER device will be constructed using the skills and expertise of the European industry. To survey the interest and availability of companies in the EU in various areas of industrial competence relevant for the construction of ITER, EFDA has launched the “Industrial Database for ITER”.

The database allows companies to register themselves, adding a number of “activity codes” that detail areas of special competence of the company and allow focused information. It can be found on the EFDA website at www.euro-fusion.org/eidi. In order to log into the database, a username and password are required. These can be obtained by sending a request to industry-dbase@bcn.efda.org. Comments on and questions about the database can be sent to the same email address.
