Significant spin-off from magnetic fusion research in Euratom-CEA association, over the last 40 years, has been induced and developed through a continuous process of exchange of scientific, technology and managerial expertise between the fusion scientists and manufacturing engineers. The growth in shared expertise, associated innovative applications and cooperative efforts with industry can be clearly identified (i) in the frame of the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) and underlying technology programme, (ii) by the industrial applications induced from Tore Supra programme and the associated joint development of large test bed facilities for control and acceptance test, (iii) by the appreciation of the expected impacts of ITER from the companies involved in the Tore Supra construction.
