Goal of the unit

The goal of the Belgian ITER coordination unit is to optimally inform Belgian companies concerning the ITER project and to involve them in its realisation. This international investment project in the South of France concerns the construction of an experimental nuclear fusion reactor.

The coordination unit also fulfils the role of Belgian Industrial Liaison Officer (ILO) within the ITER ILO network. This is a network of ITER coordination cells in the service of the European companies participating in ITER. The coordination unit provides explanation with respect to the Belgian participation in ITER. It ensures international harmonisation of the efforts and promotes the possible participation of Belgian companies in international consortia for ITER projects.

The tasks of the unit are performed by Agoria, assisted by the Belgian members of the fusion association Euratom/the Belgian State.

The unit is actively supported via funding from the FPS Economy, SME's, Middle Class and Energy.
