The mission of the DONES Programme is to develop a database of fusion-like neutron irradiation effects in the materials required for the construction of fusion power reactors, and for benchmarking of radiation response of materials.

To do so, a neutron source (IFMIF-DONES) producing high-energy neutrons at sufficient intensity and irradiation volume must be built.

The main objectives of the DONES Programme are:

The IFMIF-DONES Facility is the central element of the DONES Programme.
