The Government of Spain secures Italy’s commitment to fund IFMIF-DONES

On 2 July, the Spanish Government, through the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, reached an agreement with the Italian Government, through the Ministry of Universities and Research, which strengthens Italy’s commitment to participate in and finance the construction of the IFMIF-DONES particle accelerator in Escúzar (Granada).

In this way, Italy will join Spain and Croatia in promoting this unique scientific and technological facility, which will test, validate, and qualify the materials for future fusion power plants and contribute to the promotion of a new clean energy model.

This commitment is included in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed today by the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Universities, Juan Cruz Cigudosa, and the Italian Minister for Universities and Research, Anna Maria Bernini, in Olbia (Italy) to strengthen collaboration between the two countries in research and higher education.

Within the framework of this MoU, Spain also undertakes to support the Italian headquarters of the international infrastructure Einstein Telescope in Sos Enattos (Sardinia), in which our country will collaborate through the working groups created at the European level.
