The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) brought together almost 150 people interested in learning more about the IFMIF-DONES project and its role in the development of fusion energy on May 20, in a online conference developed within the framework of the FusionCAT project. The head of the CIEMAT Fusion Technologies Division and director of the DONES-PreP project, Ángel Ibarra, was in charge of explaining the background of DONES, as well as the current status of the initiative and the plans for the coming years, detailing the roadmap for a scientific infrastructure that the European Union aspires to build in Escúzar (Granada).
