On July 22, ARPA-E and Fusion Industry Association co-hosted a virtual Lightning Round. The event consisted of three sessions with Capability Teams funded by ARPA-E giving short presentations to the FIA Membership.
The event provided an efficient way for FIA members to receive information about the teams and capabilities, and ask questions and make connections for detailed follow-up. If there is interest, FIA Members should contact the teams directly about opportunities to work together.
