Where are the events hosted?

Our fusion open events are either held in person at Culham Science Centre or through virtual events, which allow you the same amazing experience and the opportunity to see our work, all from the comfort of your own home.

What does the event include?

Our open events include:

  • A tour of the world’s largest fusion experiment – JET
  • Either the MAST Upgrade fusion experiment, RACE robotics centre, or the MRF materials testing facility
  • A question and answer session (for virtual events this will be held in Zoom breakout rooms).

For more information on any of the fusion, research and technology programmes mentioned above – take a look at our facilities at UKAEA.
