EUROfusion supports and funds fusion research activities on behalf of the European Commission’s Euratom programme. (On 9 October 2014, fusion research bodies from European Union member states and Switzerland signed an agreement to cement European collaboration on fusion research and EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy, was born. )
EUROfusion represents the collaborative spirit of the European fusion research landscape and is proud to present itself in five European languages.
The European scientific programme is based on the Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy. The programme has two aims:
- Preparing for ITER experiments
- Developing concepts for the future demonstration fusion power plant DEMO

Cineca takes part in the project as technological partner, providing HPC to the researchers, in collaboration with ENEA.
Currently, 30 research organisations and universities from 26 European Union member states plus Switzerland and Ukraine are members of the consortium. The EUROfusion decisions are taken by the General Assembly, the ultimate decision making body made up of representatives from all Research Units.
