Abstract

�Fusion for Energy� is a dynamic new organisation with the aim of enhancing Europe�s global role in the development of fusion energy. The organisation - formally known as the European Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy - will primarily manage the EU�s contribution to ITER, the international fusion energy project.
The organisation will be based in Barcelona (Spain) and is expected to be up and running in early 2007. It will have an initial staffing of around one hundred professionals. One of its main tasks will be to work together with European industry and research organisations to develop and provide a wide range of high technology components for the ITER project.
�Fusion for Energy� will be created by a decision of the Council of the European Union as an independent legal entity: it is a joint venture that brings together Euratom (the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community), the EU Member States and other European countries that have cooperation agreements with Euratom.
