The Fusion Project of the Karlsruhe Research Center (FZK) was founded in 1982 to support the European Fusion Technology Programme. Major test facilities were built or upgraded during the past decade (including TOSKA, the tritium laboratory and the dual beam facility). Most of the installations are equally well suited for the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER). Today about fifty percent of FZK's fusion programme is contracted to ITER. Cooperation on the recently approved Wendelstein 7X Stellarator will form an increasing constituent of the programme concentrating on gyrotron development and qualification of superconducting coils. The development of breeding blankets and related materials research is of great importance particularly the helium cooled ceramic pebble bed blanket. Closely related to blanket development is the long term structural materials programme. This yearly report is structured according to the organizational scheme of the European Technology Programme. ITER references are given in the nomenclature valid during the reporting period. The annexes provide the reader with some information on participating departments and on the project management structure.
