F4E and EUROFUSION have signed a
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing the basis for increased collaboration.
The MoU was signed in September 2019 after approval by both the F4E Governing
Board and the EUROFUSION General Assembly. Although the original intention was
to focus on the implementation of the restructured European programme for the
TBM and the Breeding Blanket, its scope is now much broader, allowing for collaboration also in the design of
DEMO, Broader Approach Projects, the development and qualification of fusion
materials, the ITER operation and follow-up research, and can be further extended
to any other area the two organisations decide.
collaboration is meant to benefit the EU fusion effort by bringing together the
strengths of the two organisations and ensure complementarity of activities.
The industrial experience of F4E will now work hand in hand with the European
fusion research institutes, planning and carrying out joint work in a wide
range of areas.
