 Tonči Tadić from Croatia’s Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb visited EFDA and JET. He came for discussions about possible collaborations within the EURATOM Programme on the basis of Croatia joining the EU in 2013. The country is interested in participating in European fusion research activities. Tadić, who came on assignment for the Croatian Government, gave a presentation on Croatian fusion-related research activities and met with EFDA Leader Francesco Romanelli and EFDA Senior Advisor Duarte Borba. The initial ideas for collaboration that were formed during the talks include areas such as materials sciences and nuclear technology.
