Dr. Barry Green

After 40 years of working in fusion research and development, from the University of Sydney, the Plasma Physics Laboratory of the Princeton University, the Max-Planck Institute for Plasmaphysik in Garching, the JET Design Team, the JET Joint Undertaking, the ITER Design Team of the Engineering Design Activities and now DG Research in the Unit “Contracts of Fusion Associations” in Brussels, Barry Green has reached the compulsory age of retirement. Barry and his wife will return to Australia. But, he promised “to keep a close eye on the exciting developments in the fusion programme both international and EURATOM”, for which he has worked as a Commission employee for more than 28 years.

Over the past few years, Barry has played a key role in developing the fusion activities among the new EU member states and involving their institutes in our programme. The EFDA Leaders and the EFDA staff thank him for his cooperation and wish him all the best for the future.
