Fusion Business Opportunities at Big Science Business Forum (BSBF) 2022

On 4-7 October 2022, the top European Big Science research facilities will meet together with industry in Granada (Spain) in the Big Science Business Forum (BSBF) 2022 to present their business opportunities for the period 2022-2026 worth 37.100 million euros. At this event industry will have a unique opportunity to learn about the Big Science investments in the coming years in different technology areas and to network with key representatives from the Big Science organizations and other stakeholders.

Over the years, scientific research and advancements have been strongly tied to science communication. Although investing time and effort into developing the technical and physical knowledge that is necessary for science to progress, it is equally important to spend that same time and effort into properly communicating said progress to the non-scientific public. If this task is not taken seriously enough, we expose ourselves to the risk of misinformation spreading, leading to people taking important decisions with misleading information.

Physicists of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have combined a new machine learning strategy with their computer models to drastically improve the accuracy of simulations modelling Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) experiments at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). This technique leverages past experiments to calibrate simulations, enabling to predict the outcome of new experiments with higher accuracy than simulations on their own.

The BSC triples its members linked to FusionCAT project to develop cutting-edge tools by combining High-Performance Computing (HPC) with fusion expertise.


The Barcelona Supercomputing Centre -Centro Nacional de Supercomputacion (BSC) coordinates FusionCAT, an initiative that brings together seven Catalan institutions to collaborate in the field of research and development of fusion energy technology. The cutting-edge tools to develop are focused on High-Performance simulations of several coupled physics phenomena that take place in fusion reactors. These go from fuel production to energy harvesting, including plasma and neutron transport and new materials development.

14th Carolus Magnus Summer School

Carolus Magnus Summer School

The 14th Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics (CMSS) takes place this year between 20 September and 1 October. The event is held online and has attracted 90 participants from around 25 countries.

Attending to CMSS has a long tradition in our group. Our group leader Mervi Mantsinen was one of the participants in the 1st CMSS in Vaals, The Netherlands back in 1993 while our group member Dani Gallart with our ex-group member Allah Rakha participated in its previous 13th edition in Weert, The Netherlands, in 2018. To follow the tradition, our two PhD students, i.e. Tomás Bensadón and Mátyás Aradi, attend the summer school this year.
