To develop multi-dimensional models pertaining to Magnetic Fusion, for the Eupoean Fusion Progrramme. (i) 3-D Pellet Modelling, & (ii) Modelling of alphas from thermonuclear reactions using fluid approximations.
The two tasks will contribute to the fuleling and to the physics basis, of iter and demo. The tasks are part of the work plan for the implementation of the FUSION ROADMAP IN 2014-2018.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT (OF FUSION RESEARCH IN GENERAL)
EURATOM has the objective to place electrical grid from a FUSION Reactor by 2050. If this is achieved the impact will be of great dimensions. Present time impact is the international collaboration for Iter, which is being built in France.
