European Fusion Project
2014-2021 | European Commission / Horizon 2020

The EUROfusion programme is based on the Roadmap to the realization of Fusion Energy. The programme has two aims:

  • Preparing for ITER experiments
  • Developing concepts for the future fusion power demonstration plant DEMO

The 30 European consortium members receive research funding in accordance with their participation in the missions and experiments outlined in the Roadmap.

Another facet of the EUROfusion programme is to support fusion education and training through the EUROfusion Research Grant and EUROfusion Engineering Grant schemes. EUROfusion also supports diverse research projects in the participating laboratories through the Enabling Research scheme.


INRASTES participation in EUROfusion


INRASTES plays a key role in the Hellenic contribution to the European Fusion Program as it has been appointed by the General Secreteriat for Research & Technology as the beneficiary of EUROfusion in Horizon 2020, while the institute’s Director is the president of the Administrative Committee of the National Program of Controlled Thermonuclear Fusion.

The scientific contribution of INRASTES to EUROfusion research is though the activities of the Fusion Technology Group (internal link to labs/ftg) in the following work-packages/tasks:

  • WP Materials – Integrated Radiation Effects Modelling and Experimental Validation
    • Fe ion irradiation of Fe and FeCr thin films, effects of radiation damage on structural & magnetic properties
    • Resistivity recovery of fusion materials after proton irradiation at cryogenic temperature
  • WP JET3 Technical Exploitation of DT Operation
    • Experiments for neutron transport & activation code validation
    • Activation measurements for ITER material characterisation and data validation
    • Functional Material Damage Studies
  • WP JET2 Plasma Facing Components
    • Surface analysis of W coated CFC tiles
