Preparing for ITER and developing DEMO
The European scientific programme is based on the Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy. The programme has two aims:
- Preparing for ITER experiments
- Developing concepts for the future fusion power demonstration plant DEMO
The 30 European consortium members, receive funding for fusion projects in accordance with their participation in the missions and experiments outlined in the Roadmap.
Another facet of the EUROfusion programme is to support fusion education and training through the EUROfusion Research Grant and EUROfusion Engineering Grant schemes. EUROfusion also supports diverse research projects in the participating laboratories through the Enabling Research scheme.
