Worldwide plans to develop nuclear fusion into a future energy source will depend heavily on a new generation of highly trained and motivated engineers and physicists. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (formerly the FZK) therefore organises an annual summer school in co-operation with European research organisations and industrial companies. The workshops introduce the key fusion technologies to young scientists and engineers, giving them an insight into the challenges of fusion research. This year, 46 participants from all over Europe and India heard 35 lecturers present topics in their specific fields of competence. Visits to laboratories in the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) completed the school programme.
