Innovate with high-tech from the space and fusion industry
Space and fusion technologies can often seem out of reach for innovating everyday applications. And yet these advanced technologies are more than ever enabling breakthrough product innovations in several different sectors.
- Remote handling techniques used in EUROfusion’s JET Tokamak, are also being used in high-energy physics and surgical methods.
- Chemical and automobile industries adopt the same cleaning methods for effluents as are used for fusion waste.
- Both MRIs and fusion reactors make use of superconducting magnets.
- Several companies apply metal forming techniques and Tungsten coatings for extreme heat developed for the space and fusion industry.
At this network event attendees found out how space and fusion technologies can help them innovate.
