To investigate safety aspects of the technology of controlled thermonuclear fusion, in particular of a demonstration fusion reactor.
AbstractThe programme was drawn up in accordance with the Council Resolution of 17 December 1970 concerning the procedures for adopting research and training programmes (Official Journal No L 16 of 20.1.1971). Initially adopted for a period of four years (1977-1980), the programme was replaced by a new four-year programme as of 1 January 1980 and unused funds were allocated to the new programme.
- Conceptual studies on thermonuclear fusion reactors;
- Research on materials necessary for fusion, in particular on their behaviour under irradiation, and analysis of required testing methods and equipment;
- Study of the problems concerning safety of the environment.
ImplementationThe Commission, assisted by the board of governors of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), was responsible for the implementation of the programme by means of the services of the JRC.
