F4E launches its new website

Aris Apollonatos, Fusion for Energy

The URL has not changed, the content behind the code has. (Click to view larger version...)
The URL has not changed, the content behind the code has.
It may be the same old URL, but the content, look and feel are totally new. The flash animation in five steps gives you a flavour of what's it all about. The colours are bright, the images are sharp and the structure is clear. The new website reconciles the high-tech dimension of fusion with its human face and the promise of a sustainable and abundant energy source.

The brand new F4E homepage offers a menu that allows users to navigate easily between sections. It is structured along five main blocks: "About F4E" where users can learn more about the institutional setting, the functions of the organization and have the option to download key documents; "Understanding Fusion" presents the science of fusion and the technology of the ITER device, illustrates the different steps in getting fusion to happen and highlights its merits; "Procurement and Grants" offers an explanation on the different contracts signed by F4E, the procedures, and also presents an overview of ITER Task Agreements and ITER IO Calls; the "Media Corner" hosts the latest news and events plus a new section with publications, videos and photo galleries. Last but not least one of our most-visited sections, "Career Opportunities", offers an overview of the latest job openings and the working conditions at F4E. On the right hand side of each page, a list of quick links is inserted to help users navigate other relevant sections while on the top a menu with short cuts appears to make navigation easier.

Apart from the changes in the architecture of the site, we have also improved the texts and the language used in order to reach out to different audiences. We have redrafted a large part of the texts in order to keep the information clear and succinct. To accompany the wealth of technical details, we have made an effort to include images and videos which explain ITER and fusion in a truly engaging way. The new website offers a number of new features amongst them: animations, RSS feeds, a quick sign-up application for F4E News and the possibility to follow F4E on Twitter and to share content.

The option to follow F4E on Facebook will soon be available in order to interact in more dynamic way with the new generation of fusion fans.
