Outreach in China

A week devoted to fusion

A new biennial event in China seeks to create a comprehensive exchange platform for the scientists, engineers and industries that are driving the country's strong push in fusion research development.

More than 1,200 people attended the first China Fusion Energy Conference (CFEC 2019) in November. (Click to view larger version...)
More than 1,200 people attended the first China Fusion Energy Conference (CFEC 2019) in November.
From 25 to 29 November, Leshan City (Sichuan Province) played host to the first biennial China Fusion Energy Conference (CFEC 2019) and Fusion Energy Activities Week*.

The conference organizers—China International Nuclear Fusion Energy Program Execution Center (ITER China); the Southwestern Institute of Physics (SWIP); the Institute of Plasma Physics Chinese Academy of Sciences (ASIPP); and the China Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP)—cited three main aims for this first-of-a-kind event:

  • highlight the latest progress and achievements from domestic research institutes, universities and enterprises in fusion R&D, engineering technology and talent cultivation;
  • promote key physics and technology developments in fusion energy;
  • encourage exchange and integration between academia and industry.
China's participation and implementation in the construction and operation of ITER as well as the design and technology challenges for the next-phase DEMO-type device were at the centre of all discussions.

Outside of the main conference, events were organized as part of Fusion Energy Activities Week. These included lectures, events to popularize fusion energy, and academic exchanges on the ITER Research Plan.

* LIU Yong, former Director-General of SWIP, was the president of CFEC 2019, while LUO Delong, Director-General of ITER China and next ITER Council Chair, presided the Fusion Energy Activities Week.
