Growing international interest in nuclear fusion and scientific progress made in recent years creates opportunities for the Dutch industry and academia. To seize these opportunities effectively and efficiently, you are invited to the first edition of the Dutch Fusion Day. We will get acquainted with each other, be inspired by examples from abroad, set scientific priorities and explore funding options.

Organized bij DIFFER at TU/e Campus.

KIVI engineers are invited to attend to learn about the engineering challenges related to nuclear fusion technologies.
