Conference Description:

Delegates will learn how close we are to Realising a Fusion Power Plant and be part of the conversation on the biggest technical challenges and latest progress.

Speakers from the fusion research programme, industry and academia will bring you up to date with the latest progress in the biggest technical challenges - heating a gas of fuels to 150 million degrees C; exhausting immense heat loads, devising neutron resistant structural materials and making the whole thing remotely maintainable.

This conference includes an exclusive opportunity to take a technical tour of JET and the UKAEAs new robotics and materials research facilities.

The programme will cover three key areas with a half-day session dedicated to each:

THE LANDSCAPE FOR FUSION POWER: Addressing the necessity of political and public acceptance, the importance of economic and social considerations and opportunities in technology development and R&D.

Technology and knowledge transfer from fission to aid the realisation of fusion power plants.

FUSION SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGIES: Technology and engineering challenges unique to a fusion power plant

In the afternoon of Day Two a free technical tour of JET and the new Materials Research Facility is being offered to the first fifty delegates that request a tour.
