The Governing Board of the European Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy (‘Fusion for Energy‘) appointed the organisation’s first Director. This appointment follows the official inauguration of ‘Fusion for Energy’ at its offices in Barcelona on 28 June. The nominee Director is Dr. Didier Gambier, currently Head of Unit for the Joint Development of Fusion in the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research. With a budget of around €4 billion for the first ten years, ‘Fusion for Energy‘ will play a key role in realising fusion as a possible future limitless source of energy and has been set up to provide the European contributions to the ITER International Fusion Energy project, the Broader Approach Agreement with Japan as well as to prepare for demonstration fusion reactors.
