Fusion Experience Day @ TU Eindhoven


Coming Thursday, March 26th, 14:00 CET, Eindhoven University of Technology's FUSION group is organising their yearly Fusion Experience Day. The Fusion Experience Day is an online session. During this session you'll find out what the Master's degree in the Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion at Eindhoven University of Technology is all about.

"You can do anything you want!" -- Ana challenges young girls

A few weeks ago, we announced her as the Pecha Kucha champion of the previous PhD-event, but as a woman in the scientific field, Ana Kostic has also another story to tell. Hearing first about the concept of fusion energy through a cartoon TV-show at the age of five, Ana is now wrapping up as a PhD-student, having worked on a diagnostic tool to measure the electric fields that have a damaging effect on the plasma-heating antennas in a tokamak fusion reactor. But how did she get there and what are her plans?

2nd ENEN nuclear summer school for BSc students

The European Nuclear Education Network is organising its 2nd ENEN nuclear summer school for BSc students from 6-10 July 2020 in Budapest, Hungary. The Summer School is targeted to BSc students with an interest in the nuclear field, who are currently enrolled in their university studies in European states.

"Practice to oblivion!" -- tips from 2018 Pecha Kucha winner, Ana Kostic

On International Pecha Kucha Day, we are excited to announce that the upcoming FuseNet PhD Event will host no less than 50 Pecha Kucha presentations by doctoral students on their research topic in fusion! But what makes for a successful pitch? How can you ensure your message is understood when you only have so little time to tell it? How do you even start? The winner of previous edition, Ana Kostic, shares some valuable tips to presenters.

Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop on Theory of Fusion Plasmas

The biennial joint Varenna-Lausanne international workshop on the Theory of Fusion Plasmas will be held in Varenna, Italy, from 24 to 28 August 2020. Topics include anomalous transport, RF heating and current drive, non-axisymmetric configurations, macroinstabilities and magnetic reconnections, plasma-edge physics and divertors, and burning plasmas. PhD student can apply at a reduced fee.

CANCELLED: FuseNet PhD Event - Padova

The upcoming FuseNet PhD Event is from 3rd to 6th March 2020 in Padova (Italy). This is a conference that is dedicated for doctoral students to present their work, interact with each other and thus lay a basis for future collaborations. This edition is organised in collaboration with the University of Padova and Consorzio RFX. The programme and the venues are highly recommended. Food and hotel during the event are covered, travel would require a EUROfusion mission approval.

Control and operation of tokamaks

The doctoral-level course on Control and operation of tokamaks, organised by the EPFL's Swiss Plasma Centre and supported by FuseNet, allows PhD and Master's students to become familiar with the key issues in plasma control and operations. They will become acquainted with techniques for modeling the dynamical behavior of tokamaks and for design of control algorithms. During the course, students will do exercises using discharge preparation programs, equilibrium reconstruction codes, and control-oriented plasma models used in the tokamak community, in particular on the TCV tokamak.

Plasma diagnostics in basic plasma physics devices and tokamaks: from principles to practice

The doctoral-level course on Plasma diagnostics in basic plasma physics devices and tokamaks: from principles to practice, organised by the EPFL's Swiss Plasma Centre and supported by FuseNet, provides the theoretical background on electrostatic probes, magnetic probes and fast imaging in plasmas. Each lesson will be followed by class exercise and experimental practica on both the TCV tokamak and the TORPEX basic plasma physics device.

29th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT2020)

The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 29th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague.
