The 3rd edition of the Fusion Teacher Day took place on the 14th of October. This event is organized by Fusenet and its goal is to promote fusion science and technology among European secondary school students. Our group collaborated in this edition with the participation of Dani Gallart.
Our group at the European Researchers’ Night
The European Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide public event, which brings research and researchers closer to the public and showcases its impact on citizens’ daily lives in a fun and inspiring way. The European Researchers’ Night attracts each year more than 1 million visitors in Europe and beyond.
All types of public, from schools, families and children to young people or adults of all ages, can learn about and participate in the science of their territory through different activities such as workshops, talks, shows, experiments, astronomical observations and games.
The European Night of Research is a European scientific dissemination project promoted by the European Commission within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions of the Horizon Europe program.
Plasma community celebrates a year of fusion breakthroughs at 48th EPS Plasma Conference
Fusion Group members Tomas Bensadon and Adriana Ghiozzi participated in the 48th edition of the European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics. The event was held online due to continued concerns about the pandemic but featured a lively and fruitful dialogue nevertheless, with 612 attendees joining from countries both within and outside of Europe.
Our new research results presented at ECCOMAS 2022
Our group attended for the first time the European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS Congress 2022) in its 8th edition which took place in Oslo during the second week of June. This year’s congress is hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), together with SINTEF and the Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics in Engineering (NOACM).
Fusion Group participation at the 15th COSIRES conference
Our Fusion Group was present in the 15th edition of the conference of Computer Simulation of Irradiation Effects in Solids (COSIRES), held between the 22nd and 26th of May 2022 on the stunning island of Porquerolles, on the southern Mediterranean coast of France. Our group member Julio Gutiérrez Moreno attended this meeting and presented our recent research on linear scaling ab initio simulations in a talk titled “Study of defects in tungsten from large scale ab initio methods“.
The fusion group materials modelling work advances thanks to the support of IFERC-CSC
About one year ago, we wrote a post announcing that a collaborative EU-Japan HPC project led by the BSC Fusion Group’s researcher Julio Gutiérrez was generously funded in a competitive call coordinated within the framework of the Broader Approach (BA) Agreement.
This year, we are again glad to announce that our new project for the year 2022, titled Multi-Scale Atomistic Tungsten (MSAW), has been awarded 267K node-h (~10,688,000 core-h) on the Japan Fusion Reactor Simulator (JFRS-1), located at the Computational Simulation Centre of the International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC-CSC) in Rokkasho (Aomori, Japan). The complete list of funded projects can be accessed here.
