IFMIF – DONES: FIRST EVALUATION OF THE SPANISH CANDIDACY (GRANADA)

 

dones_spainOn June 16th, 2017, the ad-hoc committee from Fusion for Energy (F4E) has evaluated the site and general conditions of the Spanish candidacy for locating the IFMIF-DONES scientific installation in the city of Granada (more specifically, in Escúzar town). This evaluation committee, together with the experts that later presented the technical and environmental characteristics of Granada, were hosted by a prominent number of authorities (national, regional and local) as well as by representatives from different institutions from the city (universities, entrepreneurs, political parties, etc.). This showed the strong commitment of Spain with the project, at all levels.

INEUSTAR and INDUCIENCIA, supporters of the candidacy since more than 2 years ago, are members of the Executive Commission of the Candidacy, chaired by the Secretary of State Mrs. Carmen Vela Olmo. INEUSTAR presented to the F4E evaluators the Spanish Science Industry capabilities, and more specifically, in Andalusia and Granada, to successfully build and operate an installation like IFMIF-DONES.

The general perception the F4E evaluation committee shared at the end of the visit was extremely favourable.
