OF INTEREST: European fusion and fission education networks enter cooperation

On February 3, 2015, FuseNet (The European Fusion Education Network) and ENEN (The European Nuclear Education Network) signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the General Assembly meeting of FuseNet that was held at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy. It marked the start for further cooperation between the European fusion and fission education networks.
 
ENEN, the European Nuclear Education Network, is older than FuseNet but in many ways similar. As the nuclear aspects of fusion energy become more prominent – ITER is truly a nuclear device – the need to provide fusion students and engineers with proper education and training in this field becomes ever larger. Likewise, nuclear engineers are in high demand in the fusion enterprises now, and they may benefit from a fusion training.
