This annual report of the Research Centre Karlsruhe fusion project reviews the work carried out under contract with the European Commission. It contributes to the European Fusion Programme in developing the key technologies needed to build the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) and to design commercial fusion reactors. One of the most important technological missions of ITER is the qualification of first-wall and fuel components, in particular the breeding blankets. Associated with blanket activities is a programme to develop and qualify structural materials with sufficient lifetimes and reasonable activation properties. The safety related part of the fusion project contributes to the component studies and investigates the risk of severe accidents of fusion installations in nuclear operations.
