International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20) Granada, 24-29 October 2021

The Centro de Investigaciones, Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT), Spain, in collaboration with other Spanish institutions are organizing the 20th edition of the International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20) to be held in Granada, Spain, from 24th through 29th October 2021.

The ICFRM is a biennial convention which focuses on fusion materials, both structural and functional materials, and superconductors, without disregarding the analysis of the effects of irradiation. Thus, the ICFRM is the main international congress where the experts who study, develop and qualify materials for fusion energy installations from all over the world meet. It is therefore the best platform to present state-of-the-art research methods and scientific and technological results in fusion materials science.

After a warm welcome and introduction,  all participants will be redirected to interactive table discussions around four specific topics that are also important to project partners. The topics in the table discussions are:

- What are the barriers and ways forward to promote joint innovation and collaboration between Research Infrastructures and industry,
- What are best practices on approaches and tools in communication between Research Infrastructures and industry,
- How to we unlock the innovation potential of Research Infrastructures for the benefit of industry, 
- What are the roles and responsibilities of the Research Infrastructure industrial contact point,
- What are the needs concerning training and education for industry relations, and 
- What are the most important channels and collaborators (e.g. technology parks, mediators, embassies) and how do you use them to engage with industry?

ENRIITC Survey for Industry Liaison Officer

The ENRIITC project aims to build a permanent pan-European network of Industrial Liaison and Contact Officers (ILOs and ICOs) and enable industry to become a full partner of Research Infrastructures whether it is as a user, a supplier, or a co-creator. In other words, ENRIITC supports the establishment of strategic, cross-border partnerships between industry and Research Infrastructures.

An important first move in this process is mapping the key element to enact the envisaged collaborative framework between the ESFRI RIs and industry players to bring technological innovation about. For this purpose, ENRIITC is now conducting a survey in the form of two questionnaires, one addressing ILOs and the other addressing ICOs.

The Industry Liaison Officer – ILOs are usually based at government agencies, with a main role to ensure financial return on the national investment in Research Infrastructures, while also stimulating and facilitating contracts between these and national industries;

We kindly ask all Industry Liaison Officers to participate in this ENRIITC Survey.

ILOs participation is extremely valuable, as it will be used to develop an effective strategy and methodology to establish, train and empower an effective pan-European network of coordinated RI ILOs and ICOs; one that will truly take RI-Industry dialogues to a new level.

The survey will remain open online until midnight, 15 July 2020 CEST. Should you have any requests for clarification or experience any technical problems with the survey, please contact ENRIITCsurvey@ess.eu.

For this purpose, ENRIITC is now conducting a survey in the form of two questionnaires, one addressing ILOs and the other addressing ICOs.

The Industry Contact Officer – ICOs are typically employed at the Research Infrastructure, with a responsibility for increasing the use of the RI by the private sector and for developing business and partnering relationships with potential industrial Users and Co-Creators of innovative products, processes and services.

We kindly ask all Research Infrastructures having Industry Contact Officers to participate in this ENRIITC Survey.

ICOs participation is extremely valuable, as it will be used to develop an effective strategy and methodology to establish, train and empower an effective pan-European network of coordinated RI ILOs and ICOs; one that will truly take RI-Industry dialogues to a new level.
