The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) will coordinate the FusionCAT project on the generation of fusion energy that will receive funding from European Regional Development Funds (ERDF), through the Pla Acció of the research and innovation strategy for smart specialization in Catalunya, RIS3CAT.

The emerging technologies program promotes the development of new emerging activities in Catalunya, based on innovative or disruptive technologies or processes that aim to open new markets or transform existing ones.

FusionCAT is a project that aims to boost the emerging sector of nuclear fusion in Catalunya and to obtain sustainable, safe and low-carbon energy sources, with a reliable and predictable generation of base load.
