The primary objective of Conectus is to strengthen the basis for commercial applications of superconductivity for stakeholders in Europe.
…is a consortium of European companies with the shared vision that commercialization of superconductivity will translate into significant benefits to economy and society.
…provides a platform for industry to exchange information and to provide a united voice on public policy issues of common interest to superconductivity stakeholders.
…seek to ensure that the benefits of superconductivity are fully realized by decision-makers in industry, academia and governments.…unite to advocate for key priorities and adequate government support focused on superconductor-related research, development and industrial projects.
- European Workshop on Superconductivity for Sustainable Energy Systems and Particle AcceleratorsInstitutes and Industry joined forces for an international workshop on the impact of superconductivity for increased sustainability of energy systems and particle accelerators. The workshop was hosted by the GSI, Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH a Helmholtz institute at Darmstadt, Germany and was organized by GSI together with CONECTUS, the European association of companies in superconductivity. From October 18th to 20th 2023 experts on superconductivity discussed recent progress in the development of superconducting material and devices for enhanced sustainability. The workshop was a great forum for exchange between the communities of accelerators and energy systems, and also for communication between participants … Read more

- CONECTUS at ISIS-30 in KoreaCONECTUS took part at the 30th International Superconductivity Industry Summit held in Daejeon, Korea, 7. – 9. 11. 2023. This time we were represented by our members Dr. Prusseit of THEVA and Dr. Fischer of Leybold. Dr. Prusseit gave the attendees and overview of activities of CONECTUS members and also presented selected major projects in the field taking place in Europe. Our main conclusions from the meeting: New technologies (Compact nuclear fusion, Quantum computing, Hydrogen technology, Power generation – Transmission – Generation) are the main drivers for further large-scale industrial adoption of superconductivity. High Temperature Superconductors are getting more attractive … Read more
