The 14th Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics (CMSS21), organised by the partners in the Trilateral Euregio Cluster (TEC) and the euroregional universities, will take place as a virtual event 20 September - 1 October 2021. The TEC bundles the fusion efforts of the Laboratory for Plasma Physics of the ERM/KMS Brussels and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK*CEN at Mol, the Institute for Energy and Climate Research - Plasma Physics at Research Centre Jülich (FZJ, Germany), and DIFFER - Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research in Eindhoven.
The Carolus Magnus Summer School is devoted to the theoretical and experimental aspects of high temperature plasmas confined in toroidal magnetic fields. Here, special emphasis is laid on tokamaks, but stellarators and other confinement concepts are also discussed. The Carolus Magnus Summer School does not only teach fusion basics, it also describes the latest developments on the way to the fusion power plant.
Most lectures are given by senior physicists from the TEC Institutes and by academic staff from the nearby universities of North Rhine-Westphalia, Belgium and the Netherlands. Usually, some lectures are also delivered by experts from other laboratories associated in the European fusion research programme and from ITER.
The Carolus Magnus Summer School is primarily intended for PhD students as well as for master students who intend to become PhD students after the present academic year. Experienced scientists or engineers who, coming from other disciplines, recently entered the fields of plasma physics or nuclear fusion will also benefit from the school that will provide an overview of the various interconnected research domains.
