FuseNet 2013 PhD Event at York University

With an attendance of almost 80 PhD Students, the third FuseNet PhD event in fusion science and engineering successfully took place from June 24 - June 26, 2013 at the University of York, UK.


The PhD event was a great success and you can read several Eye-Witness reports here:
