This document forms the yearly report of the Karlsruhe Research Centre (FZK)-EURATOM association and is structured according to the organizational scheme of the European Technology Programme. The latest developments in all parts of the programme are given. Major test facilities include TOSKA, a test facility for large superconducting magnets; the tritium laboratory (TLK), EDITH, a demonstration environment for full scale remote maintenance equipment, and the dual beam facility to simulate irradiation effects under fusion conditions. Most of the installations are equally well suited for the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor ITER (TOSKA, TLK and smaller set ups for the test of vacuum pumping systems, plasma facing materials and microwave components). The recently approved Wendelstein 7X Stellarator will from an increasing constituent of the programme concentrating on gyrotron development and qualification of superconducting coils. The FZK fusion project has also concentrated on the development of breeding blankets and related materials research. A concentration process has been initiated which will result in some restructuring of the blanket programme. The long term materials programme has concentrated on reduced activation ferritic-martensitic steels as suitable structural materials. The annexes provide the reader with some information on participating departments and on the project management structure.
