Based on experience gained thus far with the BeYOND industry forum, organizers plan to expand the scope of their communications for the period 2018-2025 (First Plasma). BeYOND will continue to act as a fusion “think tank”, gathering and presenting information on research trends, political developments, business models and transfer ideas on a regular basis (see also article: “From Lab to Practice”, http://www.atlantic-innovation.org/cases/lab-practice).
The plan is to expand the scope of the forum to include continuing professional training/development and competency development catering to a diverse range of scientific, economic, national and international interests.
The expanded format will take effect with the BeYOND VIII forum (fall 2018), which will include various industry workshops to the theme of “Handling Extreme Materials, Fusion and Sustainable Business Models”. Partners from business, research and the public sector will be invited to attend.
