European educational initiatives in fusion aim to maintain the expertise that has placed the EU fusion program at the forefront of international fusion research and engineering and to ensure the availability of competent staff to construct and operate ITER and DEMO.

There are two pillars to the European strategy: the Erasmus Mundus European Master of Science in Nuclear Fusion and Engineering Physics (FUSION-EP) and the Erasmus Mundus International Doctoral College in Fusion Science and Engineering (FUSION-DC).

The two-year FUSION-EP program is organized over four semesters and offers 3 tracks, 5 universities and 13 partners in 9 countries. Its aim is to provide a high-level multinational research-oriented education in fusion-related engineering physics in close relation to the research activities of the partners, together with a well-integrated language and cultural experience.

There are seven core partner universities—Ghent University (Belgium, responsible for coordination); Université de Lorraine (Nancy,France); Universität Stuttgart (Germany); Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3, Spain), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM, Spain), Aix-Marseille Université (AMU, France), and the Institut Nationale des Sciences & Techniques Nucléaires (INSTN, France)—and many associate partners.

FUSION-DC is a three-year joint doctoral program in nuclear fusion science and engineering offered by a consortium of 29 European partner institutions from 9 EU countries (9 full partners and 20 associated), as well as the ITER Organization and 14 associated partners from China, Japan, Russia, Ukraine and the USA. FUSION-DC provides a sustainable, integrated and coordinated education at the doctoral level in the framework of a worldwide network of excellence in magnetic confinement fusion.

The program focuses on a number of research fields that address the major remaining challenges for making fusion energy a reality, with an emphasis on next-step devices (ITER, W7-X, DEMO) and reactor aspects.
