About EUROfusion

On October 9 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 Development of Fusion Energy, was born. EUROfusion supports and funds fusion research activities on behalf of the European Commission’s Euratom programme.

An Introduction to EUROfusion


Organisation

Get insights into how the EUROfusion consortium is structured.

Consortium Members

30 research organisations and universities from 26 European Union member states plus Switzerland and Ukraine signed the EUROfusion consortium agreement.

Roadmap

The roadmap to the realisation of fusion energy breaks the quest for fusion energy down into eight missions.

Partners

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

Mission

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 'Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy' as a Joint Programme within Euratom Horizon 2020.

Vision

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. 

Budget

€440 million from EURATOM H2020

€410 million from member states
