The year 2024 has started with the opportunity for two new Master students to carry out their MSc thesis research projects in our Fusion group. Their internships will last between six and eight months during which they will be able to have a first-hand experience with one of the most powerful supercomputers worldwide, the MareNostrum 5, in a hot timely topic such as nuclear fusion.
The successful candidates will participate in cutting-edge European R&D activities related to the optimization and programming of codes devoted to simulation-based plasma physics science and fusion technology. They will become members of this reference performance group in an international working environment.
On Saturday, June 10, took place the 16a Festa de la ciència in the Rambla of Prim of Barcelona. More than 6000 assistants came to this science dissemination event organized by the Ajuntament of Barcelona and counted with 176 activities and engaged more than 150 city entities related to science and dissemination. As last year, our Fusion Group participated to disseminate Fusion technology among the event participants.

The 3rd Fusion HPC Workshop, hosted by our Fusion group and sponsored by the FusionCAT project, was organized as an online event on December 15-16, 2022. As in the previous two editions in 2020 and 2021, the workshop was devoted to computer applications using High Performance Computing (HPC) in the field of fusion research. This year, the workshop attracted a total of 171 registrations from 41 countries all over the world.
With a two-day event, the closure of the FusionCAT project has taken place. FusionCAT involved seven regional institutions from Catalonia devoted to developing industrial skills and achieving fusion energy and has been co-financed by the European Union Regional Development Fund within the framework of the ERDF Operational Program 2014-2020, with the support of Generalitat de Catalunya.
