Fusion for Energy (F4E) was established in April 2007 for a period of 35 years. It primarily manages Europe’s contribution to ITER, the international fusion energy project. One of its main tasks is to work together with European industry and research organisations to develop and provide a wide range of high technology components for the ITER project. Drawing on F4E’s pool of collective expertise, Europe can become a world leader in the construction of demonstration fusion reactors.
The members of the F4E are the 27 EU countries, Euratom (represented by the European Commission) and Switzerland.
