Magnetic Fusion Energy Sciences at Foreign Facilities
The Department of Energy is inviting cooperative agreement applications from multi-institutional teams to carry out experimental research in magnetic fusion energy sciences on international tokamak facilities. The Fusion Energy Sciences International Collaboration portfolio supports U.S scientific teams who work in collaboration with foreign scientists to explore critical science and technology issues at the frontiers of magnetic fusion research. Projects should address one of five goals related to achieving high-performance core plasma regimes suitable for long pulse: transport, long pulse control, plasma wall interaction, magnetic divertor optimization, and auxiliary systems.
DEADLINE: A pre-application is due May 14, full proposals June 21.
FUNDS: $6 million annually will be available for two or three topic teams ranging from $2 million to $3 million over three years.
