Myeun Kwon, the newly appointed President of the NFRI, during his first ITER Council meeting.
On 12 September, Myeun Kwon, the former director of KSTAR, the Korean superconducting tokamak, was appointed president of the Korean National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI), which is dedicated to conducting research and development of fusion energy. Equipped with a budget of USD 5 million per year, the institute fosters the education of fusion scientists and engineers and performs basic R&D.
