The Programme Manager (CEO) of EUROfusion, Tony Donné, visited last October 7 the Metropolitan Park of Escúzar (Granada), the site where the future IFMIF-DONES particle accelerator will be built.

Other attendees accompanied EUROfusion Programme Manager in his visit: Director General of CIEMAT, Carlos Alejaldre; Spanish Industrial Liaison Officer (ITER) of CDTI, Belén del Cerro; and the Director of the IFMIF-DONES Consortium, Ángel Ibarra. They were welcomed by the Mayor of Escúzar, Antonio Arrabal, and the President and Manager of the Metropolitan Park, Carlos Infanzón and Sergio González. Other members of the IFMIF-DONES team in CIEMAT and the Technical Office of the University of Granada were also present.
