Fusion research contributions by Unique Scientific Infrastructures in Spain

Three of the 29 Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) in Spain: Alba synchrotron, TJ-II heliac fusion reactor and MareNostrum supercomputer.

The Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) in Spain are facilities, resources and services for the development of top-quality cutting-edge research as well as communication, exchange, and preservation of knowledge, technology transfer, and promotion of innovation. They are either unique or exceptional in their fields, have a high cost of investment, maintenance, and operation, and are of a strategic importance that justifies their availability to all actors in the field of R&D&I.

For example, the Gran Telescopio de Canarias (the Great Telescope of the Canary Islands) is used, among others, to monitor potentially dangerous asteroids and the ALBA synchrotron is used to study the material’s internal structure. They all share three fundamental characteristics: they are infrastructures with public ownership, unique and open to competitive access.

My experience working as a summer intern in the BSC Fusion Group

Lara San Martín Suárez

I am Lara San Martín Suárez, and from the 22nd of June to the 30th of August 2020 I have been a summer internship student at the Fusion Group in Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), selected to take part in their annual International Summer HPC Internship Programme.

I started my internship when Barcelona was still in the second phase of the de-escalation government plan, caused by the COVID-19 outbreak that happened at the beginning of this year. Because of that, I started the Programme by working from home, and due to the instability of the pandemic during these months I did the whole internship this way.
