Information Note on Coordination and Support actions (Fusion energy research) in the field of education

Funded under: FP7-EURATOM-FUSION

Abstract

After the review of the training activities carried out during FP6, in particular the Euratom Fusion Training Schemes in the field of fusion energy research, a call on fusion education using a Coordination or a Support Action has been published by the Commission (see Annex 1). These funding mechanisms, as part of the Euratom Work Programme 2007, are expected to enhance qualifications in fusion plasma physics and engineering, strengthen cooperation with related fields and attract high quality of researchers, and support the general objectives of the programme.
The objective of this Coordination or Support action would be to support and coordinate critical-mass cooperation between research organisations and higher education in the area of fusion plasma physics and engineering. This action should include the organisation and management of joint or common initiatives including joint curricula or doctoral studies, cooperation with other education institutes active in relevant fields such as computing, grid-networking and materials, fellowships, seminars, workshops and summer schools and access to facilities as training platforms.
