Fusion energy using tokamaks: can development be accelerated?

Scientific discussion meeting at The Royal Society organised by Professor Colin Windsor FRS, Professor Dennis Whyte, Dr Jack Connor FRS, Dr Melanie Windridge and Professor Gunther Janeschitz.

Fusion power is one of the few options for abundant, safe, carbon-free energy. Steady progress has been made using tokamaks, but the flagship ITER remains years ahead. It is time for a discussion on whether new technologies, techniques and materials, such as high temperature superconductors, spherical tokamaks and composite materials could lead to faster development.

This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields.
