‌‌This is meeting organised under the auspices of the IEA Fusion Power Co-ordinating Committee (FPCC). The objective of the FPCC is to enhance fusion research, development, demonstration and deployment (RDD&D) activities with a strategic approach to realising fusion energy in both IEA member countries and key Partner countries. The FPCC accomplishes this objective by promoting, initiating and co-ordinating international co-operation on fusion carried out under the fusion-related energy technology initiatives, formally organised through an Implementing Agreement.
