Fusion Technology Transfer Activities

EUROfusion launched in 2014 a Technology transfer project named “Fusion Technology Transfer Activity FUTTA” in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) that brought its methodology and vision of technology transfer. As a pilot, FUTTA I involved a limited number of brokers. This first phase generated more than 20 fusion technology descriptions, up to 3 success stories and insights for the development of a broader EUROfusion Technology Transfer Programme.

EUROfusion has decided to implement a second phase of the FUTTA Project implying a wider broker network, demonstrator calls and new tools in order to go further in the dissemination and exploitation of EUROfusion beneficiaries’ IPR towards industry. The extension of the network activities between FUTTA I and FUTTA II (with the implementation of brokers and local presence in other member states) shall reinforce the diversity of the network and open new challenges in order to raise the amount of technology transfer.
