The Fusion Facilities Review Panel finalised and delivered its report to the European Commission. It was presented by the chairman of the panel, Pr. T. Hartkopf, at the CCE-FU on 30 October. This independent panel of experts appointed in December 2007 at the beginning of the Seventh European Research Framework Programme (2007 – 2013) by the EU Commission was set up to develop a vision of the R&D required to make fusion energy production ready for commercial exploitation, and to review all significant facilities, existing or under construction. It comprised five European members outside the fusion research community and four non- European fusion experts.

The report can be found on under Fusion/Publications.
