All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from stakeholders in the European Fusion Research Programme, research laboratories, universities, national funding agencies and ministries.
Period of consultation
From 28.06.2012  to 21.09.2012
Objective of the consultation

In its proposal for the Euratom Programme 2014-18, part of Horizon 2020, the European Commission (EC) states: "The strategy to develop fusion as a credible option for commercial carbon-free energy production shall follow a roadmap with milestones towards the goal of electricity production by 2050. To implement that strategy, a radical restructuring of fusion-related work in the Union, including governance, funding and management, shall be carried out to ensure a shift of emphasis from pure research to designing, building and operating future facilities such as ITER, DEMO and beyond. That shall require a close cooperation between the entire Union fusion community, the Commission and the national funding agencies."

Following the EU Council's initial reaction, the Commission is planning to complement the proposal by preparing a Communication on the future implementation of the fusion programme. It is in this context that the Commission would like to consult all stakeholders, and is inviting in particular key members of the fusion community to complete the present Web-based survey.
