The main scope of this meeting is the presentation and discussion of the project activities within the EUROfusion working package WPSA (Preparation and Exploitation of JT-60SA). This work package is in support of a European exploitation of JT-60SA within the broader approach and possibly beyond. The main objective is to prepare for a high level EU participation in JT-60SA scientific exploitation, fully integrated in the EU fusion programme. You can find the latest information on the activities carried out within the WPSA project in the WPSA wiki page.

The format of the meeting will be similar to previous PPMs, i.e., 3 days of plenary meeting and 1.5 days of working sessions. Videoconference will also be available.

Agenda will be prepared by the Project Leader and the Responsible Officers of the different activities as usual.
