While the fusion community continues its quest to harness fusion for energy needs, the research has borne numerous short-term benefits. It should be no surprise that fusion research with its complex, multidisciplinary nature has pushed advances in disciplines ranging from medical technology and environment to astrophysics and material sciences. EUROfusion has identified some of these spin-offs and put together a non-exhaustive list that demonstrates the short-term benefits of fusion research on the way to fusion electricity. Read more about them: Fusion Spin-off list.


The inforgraphic presented here draws from the fusion spin-off list and gives the gist of how different disciplines and fields have benefited from fusion research.

After opening up the famous SouthbySouthWest film festival in Austin, Texas, this year, LET THERE BE LIGHT” caused a stir in the media and the movie world. It even received the Artistic Screening Award from the Big Sky Film Festival “in recognition of the film’s artistic merit and educational value."

If you want to catch the screening, you have to hurry, because the number of seats is limited. EUROfusion will hand out the tickets beforehand at its booth (on October 21, from 11 am to 3 pm) in the Physics Department of the Technical University of Munich (James-Franck-Strasse 1, Garching). First come, first serve!


Garching Open Door Day on 21 October from 11 am to 6 pm


Besides the screening, EUROfusion presents its own stand throughout the whole Garching Open Door Day. You will find us in the Physics Department at the Technical University Munich in Garching (James-Franck-Strasse 1). We offer you the unique chance to produce your own energy and we will eagerly answer all your questions on fusion energy.

Deutschlandpremiere von “LET THERE BE LIGHT” (engl.)

EUROfusion laedt zur Deutschlandpremiere von “Let there be light” mit anschliessender Publikumsdiskussion: die brilliante Dokumentation ueber die Geschichte der Kernfusion wird am 21. Oktober 2017 erstmals in Deutschland vorgestellt. ITER-Wissenschaftler und Protagonist Mark Henderson stellt sich im Anschluss den Fragen des Publikums.


EUROfusion ist während des Tags der Offenen Tuer mit einem eigenen Stand in der Physik-Fakultaet der TU Muenchen vertreten. Dort stellen wir neben dem ITER-Projekt auch das europaeische Konsortium zur Erzeugung von Fusionsenergie vor. Werden Sie selber aktiv und erzeugen Sie Energie. Wie das geht? Einfach vorbei kommen. Los geht es um 11 Uhr. An unserem Stand geben wir auch die Tickets fuer die Kinovorfuehrung aus.


"Let there be light" feierte im Maerz 2017 Premiere beim renommierten SouthbySouthWest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Die Dokumentation, die Fusion als alternative Energiequelle wieder in den Fokus rueckt, gewann bereits den ‘Artistic Screening Award’ fuer ihre besondere Fotografie und den beeindruckenden Bildungswert.

Die Platzzahl ist begrenzt. Tickets werden vorab am EUROfusion Stand (Physik Fakultaet, James-Franck-Strasse 1, Garching) am 21. Oktober von 11 bis 15 Uhr ausgegeben. Schnell sein, lohnt sich
