Susana Clement receives recognition from ‘Women in DONES’ collective

The Alhambra witnessed the recognition that the collective ‘Women in DONES’ (WiD) paid to Susana Clement, Acting Head of Broader Approach Department at Fusion for Energy. This tribute was held during the 2nd DONES Xcitech School, organised in Granada by the IFMIF-DONES Consortium and the University of Granada, from 21 to 26 April.

“Thank you very much for this recognition of Women in DONES. I am proud to receive it when I am only a few months away from retirement. I am happy to see that young women are taking up the baton and that there are more and more of you,” said Clement.

Clement received the distinction from the former rector of the University of Granada, Pilar Aranda, who received the same award last year, together with Yolanda Benito, director general of CIEMAT.

Susana Clement was accompanied by a significant representation of the WiD collective and representatives of IFMIF-DONES and the University of Granada, headed by the director, Ángel Ibarra, and the rector, Pedro Mercado, respectively. Several institutional representatives, such as the sub-delegate of the Government in Granada, José Antonio Montilla, and the councillor of the Granada City Council, Vito Epíscopo, also attended the event.

During this recognition also presented Aurora Ortega Moral with the scholarship, who was selected by Fusion for Energy (F4E) to attend the 2nd DONES Xcitech School.

With a degree in Physics from the University of Granada and extensive research experience in theoretical and experimental nuclear physics at several large research facilities in Switzerland and France, Aurora Ortega brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the programme. Her dedication to advancing fusion research and sustainable energy is truly inspiring.

“The idea of building IFMIF-DONES in Granada was already something I dreamt of as an undergraduate. Now, I realise that this is becoming a reality. I am ready to join this ambitious project in the next stages as a researcher, contributing to developing the ultimate energy solution for society, fusion,” she said.
