SIno-French Fusion Energy centeR
Associated laboratories SWIP-IRFM, ASIPP-IRFM have carried out common mid and long-terms programs of science and technology to support ITER and China/France Fusion Energy research program.
November, the French journal, Revue Générale Nucléaire (RGN) published a
special issue under the title “China, the New Giant of Nuclear”, which
introduces the nuclear development in China. Among the focused projects which
are considered as the key elements of “the New Giant”, China Fusion Engineering
Test Reactor (CFETR) is regarded as the sign of China’s acceleration in nuclear
RGN is a French journal published by the French Nuclear Energy Society (SFEN) since 1975. It has become a reference in the nuclear editorial world. By reading RGN, readers can discover the latest innovations and follow the technological progress in nuclear energy.
CFETR is the next-step fusion device in the roadmap for the realization of fusion energy in China, which aims to bridge the gaps between the fusion experimental reactor ITER and the demonstration reactor (DEMO). The establishment of SIFFER reflects the common desire of CEA and China to collaborate more closely for the future of magnetic fusion, with strong support for ITER and fusion projects in China, particularly the CFETR.

CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
