Realising Fusion Energy

About EUROfusion

On 9 October 2014, fusion research bodies from European Union member states and Switzerland signed an agreement to cement European collaboration on fusion research and EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy, was born. Presently EUROfusion supports and funds fusion research activities on behalf of the European Commission’s Euratom programme within 26 EU member states, while Switzerland, Norway and the United Kingdom participate in the activities with their national fusion budgets.

Consortium Members

Currently, 31 research organisations, and behind them about 150 affiliated entities including universities and companies, from 26 European Union member states plus the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway signed the EUROfusion consortium agreement.



The European Research Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy breaks the quest for fusion energy down into eight missions.



EUROfusion works in close collaboration with other organisations such as Fusion For Energy and EIROforum and of course ITER.



EUROfusion's mission is to pave the way for fusion power reactors. To do so, the consortium funds the research of its 30 members on the basis of the "European Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy" as a joint programme within Euratom Horizon 2020.


Our vision is a world in which fusion power plants feed the grid with CO2-free fusion power and complement other sources of energy production. 


From 2014 to 2020 EUROfusion was supported by €678.8 million from EURATOM and €555.3 million from member states.
