The Board of nine independent experts who evaluated the Fusion programme concluded that the EC should retain fusion as a high priority in its R&D strategies. They recommended that the life of JET be extended to 1996 with tritium operation in the last two years to be followed by an experimental reactor (Next Step) and a demonstration reactor (DEMO). Europe must express its full commitment to the ITER concept, whilst retaining the capability to proceed with NET. Environment and safety topics must assume a high priority within the Fusion programme.
