Over a thousand scientists from 35 countries will participate in the ICFRM-21 (International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials), which will be held at the Palacio de Congresos de Granada from Sunday to Friday.
The opening ceremony of ICFRM-21 will be held on Monday 23rd at 9:00 am, with the participation of Angel Ibarra and María José Caturla, Conference Chairs; Eberhard Diegele, Chair International Advisory Committee; Nieves Valenzuela, Director General for the Promotion of Innovation of the Andalusian Regional Government; Raquel Yotti, Secretary General for Research of the Ministry of Science and Innovation; Marifrán Carazo, Mayoress of Granada; and Tony Donné, Programme Manager of EUROfusion. Other regional and local authorities will be invited to the event.
The conference organisers are the IFMIF-DONES Consortium, the Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT) and the universities of Granada, Alicante and Politécnica de Madrid.
ICFRM-21 brings together the international community (scientists, companies and public bodies) working on developing Fusion Energy as a new energy source. Fusion materials, the central theme of the congress, is an area in which Spain in general and Granada in particular, with the construction of the IFMIF-DO project, is working on developing fusion energy as a new energy source.
ICFRM-21 brings together the international community (scientists, companies and public bodies) working to develop Fusion Energy as a new energy source. Fusion materials, the central theme of the congress, is an issue in which Spain in general and Granada in particular, with the construction of the IFMIF-DONES project, is highly committed and is an international reference.
The construction of IFMIF-DONES in Granada has been one of the main reasons for the city to host this important meeting. Spain’s leading role in the development of fusion energy will increase to become an absolute world reference with the commissioning of the Escúzar particle accelerator. In this scientific infrastructure, the materials necessary for the development of fusion as a new energy source will be studied.
During the week of ICFRM-21, and although it is not part of the Congress programme itself, the second meeting of the DONES Steering Committee, the highest governing body of the DONES Programme in which high-level decisions affecting IFMIF-DONES are taken, will be held on 26 October. The 17 countries currently members of the Steering Committee, as well as European institutions such as EURATOM, EUROfusion and F4E, will be present.
