With the decision to build ITER, the development of nuclear fusion a sustainable energy source has accelerated. The field attracts more and more engineers, perfectly capable of their engineering job, but often lacking the deeper insights into the broader fusion physics challenges at play. Opportunities for education and training are scarce and mainly focused upon the PhD level in university, or dedicated summer schools which addressed specific research issues.

The new Fusion Academy offers crash courses in the science and technology of fusing atoms. (Click to view larger version...)
The new Fusion Academy offers crash courses in the science and technology of fusing atoms.
With this in mind, the Fusion Academy offers a three-day crash course in the science and technology of nuclear fusion. In collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology, the Fusion Academy has developed a unique program adapted to professionals in fusion R&D.

The course promotes interactive teaching and for that reason the group will be limited to 6-12 persons. The first event is scheduled for 20-22 June, 2012 near Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
