ITER Fusion PhD Event

Fusion energy is the future. And you are the future of fusion energy

It is with great pleasure to announce that the ITER Organization will be hosting this year’s Fusion PhD event. The event will take place 6 to 9 November 2018 at the ITER Headquarters in Southern France.

The three-day event, financed by the education platform FuseNet, will offer tremendous opportunities to discuss and exchange with researchers from the international fusion community. And as a new feature this year, a special incentive event will give you the opportunity to interact with representatives from the fusion industry.










About the event

  • The costs of the event, except for your travel expenses, are covered by FuseNet.

    In order to allow as many students as possible to participate to this year’s event, while at the same time keep the costs within a reasonable limit, we encourage you to share hotel rooms (see registration panel on the right).
  • To participate in the event, the topic of your PhD should be directly relevant to the European Fusion Roadmap. Students from FuseNet member institutes will come first.

    To be eligible for funding, your university or the institute you work in should be a FuseNet member. If this is not the case, you will have to pay for the accommodation.

  • When joining the event it is mandatory to present your work to your fellow PhD students either by means of a poster during one of the poster sessions, or with an oral.

    This year, the oral presentations are set up in PechaKucha style. This is 20 slides, 20 seconds each, so 6:40 min in total.

    The best presentation will receive an award. We especially encourage students in the last year of their PhD studies to participate to this competition.
