Fusion Technology Transfer Award 2023 goes to CEA IRFM for its contribution to safer hydrogen-powered aircrafts
The Fusion Technology Transfer Award 2023 was granted to CEA for its project leveraging on its quench modelling code STREAM and lessons learned during WEST quench incident and JT-60SA loss of vacuum incident to develop safer hydrogen tanks and support AIRBUS to bring zero-emissions aircraft to market by 2035. A 10 000 EUR prize has been handed to this initiative which highlights the benefits of fusion know-how to safety modelling and cryogenics system. ‘Fusion projects are increasing European competitiveness in cutting-edge technologies’ Susana Clement, F4E Head of the Broader Approach Programme and Delivery Department (JT-60SA, IFERC, and IFMIF Projects).
2022 Open Call winner VIA Electronic expands its competitive advantage by adapting an interconnection technology applicable for high peak temperatures
VIA Electronic, winner of the 2022 Open Call for Fusion Technology Transfer Demonstrator proposals, developed an ambitious project for ITER which can have a real impact for non-fusion markets. The idea in brief: adapting an interconnection technology applicable for high peak temperatures (up to 700°C) and developed for the ITER project to offer new competitive products for power electronics, LEDs and sensors applications.
After one year of research and thanks to the F4E funding, VIA Eletronics could develop this idea for the ITER project to offer new competitive products for power electronics, LEDs and sensors applications.
