EUROfusion is a consortium of national fusion research institutes located in the European Union and Switzerland. It was established in 2014 to succeed the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) as the umbrella organisation of Europe’s fusion research laboratories. The consortium is currently funded by the Euratom Horizon 2020 programme. The EUROfusion consortium agreement has been signed by 30 research organisations and universities from 26 European Union countries plus Switzerland and Ukraine.
EUROfusion, the ‘European Consortium for the Development of Admixture Energy’, manages and funds European admixture analysis activities on account of Euratom, EUROfusion has amount of publications and its Reports such as:
In 2015 the article entitled “Report on Options for Stakeholder and public engagement” by the authors “Prades, A. Oltra, C., Delicado, A. Schmidt, L., Meskens, G., Turcanu, C, Perko, T”; 2014; Comparative Analysis of the public discourse about fusion and nuclear energy before and after Fukushima, Schmidt, L., A.

EUROfusion collaborated abundant added all-embracing admixture conferences: IEEE – Plasma Conferences; FIRE – Admixture Meetings; SPC – All-embracing Admixture Conferences; PSE – All-embracing Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering etc.
30 analysis organisations and universities from 26 European countries additional Switzerland and Ukraine active the EUROfusion bunch agreement. In accession added than 100 Third Parties accord to the analysis activities through the Bunch members. EUROfusion coact with Admixture for Activity (Spain) and assiduously abutment the ITER All-embracing Organization (France).
EUROfusion: RESEARCH FOR TOMORROWS ENERGY SUPPLY- Fusion: Powering the Sun: Admixture is the action that admiral and drives the assembly of activity in stars, such as our Sun. The acutely top pressures and temperatures that abide in the bulk of the Sun, about 15,000,000° Celsius, could cause hydrogen atoms to become so hot that they bang with anniversary added and agglutinate to anatomy helium. During this acknowledgment a ample bulk of activity is appear — the activity that keeps the Sun afire and sustains activity on Earth.
