Chinese delegates recently visited EUROfusion’s flagship, the Joint European Torus (JET), and test bed facilities at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy. With their European colleagues the members of the Institute of Plasma Physics from the Chinese Academy of Science (ASIPP) and the Chinese Center for Fusion Science from the Southwestern Institute of Physics (SWIP) discussed the possible upgrade of JET’s additional heating system and Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating. The talks were held in the context of JET’s extension beyond 2020 as being explored by EUROfusion. In addition, the Chinese delegation checked out training possibilities for their engineers and scientists at JET or the different medium sized tokamaks which EUROfusion owns. The Asian fusion experts showed particular interest in remote handling and the deuterium-tritium performance. Talks about an updated bilateral work programme between Chinese and European fusion researchers have been ongoing since last year. After nominating European and Chinese oordinators in April 2015 the following step is to jointly define working tasks. The next meeting will be held in January at EUROfusion’s other headquarter in Garching.
