FUSION-DC is a three-year Joint Doctoral Programme in nuclear fusion science and engineering offered by a consortium of 29 European partner institutions from 9 EU countries (9 full partners and 20 associated), the ITER Organization and 14 associated partners from China, Japan, Russia, Ukraine and the USA. FUSION-DC provides a sustainable, integrated and coordinated education at the doctoral level in the framework of a worldwide network of excellence in magnetic confinement fusion (MCF).
The EU is world leader in the development of MCF as a sustainable energy source and FUSION-DC embraces most of the largest European fusion institutions.
The FUSION-DC doctoral programme involves an attractive variety of educational and training activities (among which the yearly PhD summer event) and an unsurpassed diversity of research opportunities at the partner institutions and research facilities. FUSION-DC focuses on a number of research fields that address the major remaining challenges for making fusion energy a reality, with an emphasis on next-step devices (ITER, W7-X, DEMO) and reactor aspects.
Application is now CLOSED.
The call for applications for the 5th edition of FUSION-DC was open from October 1st 2015 until January 10th 2016.
