Abstract

In its decision on the Euratom Specific Programme, the Council of Ministers underlines the objective of fusion energy research programme: 'Developing the knowledge base for, and realising ITER as the major step towards, the creation of prototype reactors for power stations which are safe, sustainable, environmentally responsible, and economically viable'.
This booklet describes fusion energy research and how it is co-ordinated and managed in Europe. The next generation fusion experiment, ITER, should pave the way in the second half of the 21st century for fusion to provide a significant contribution to the world's energy production.
