This January, one hundred and eighty participants, representing industrial companies from all over Italy, gathered in Villa Tuscolana in Frascati to attend the “Presentation of ITER Project to Italian Industry”. The event was organized by ENEA with the objective of informing Italian industry on the present status of ITER and about the opportunities of participation in its construction. Working in the fusion program, Italian companies have gained valuable experience in providing large and complex components and meeting performance challenges. They are now looking forward to participate in the realization of the device.
