EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy, manages European fusion research activities on behalf of the European Commission.
The members of the EUROfusion consortium are 30 national fusion laboratories. EUROfusion funds all fusion research activities in accordance with the Roadmap to the realisation of fusion energy. This Roadmap outlines the most efficient way to realize fusion electricity. It is the result of an analysis of the European Fusion Programme undertaken by all Research Units within EUROfusion’s predecessor organization, EFDA.
Since the 1970s, when Europe’s fusion laboratories joined forces to build and operate the Joint European Torus (JET), they have continuously developed their collaboration. To coordinate research activities beyond JET, the Associates formed the European Fusion Development Agreement, EFDA, in 1999. The EUROfusion consortium takes this development another step further.
