A collaboration agreement between NTU and the CEA was signed on October 23 in Singapore   

A framework collaboration agreement on fusion energy was signed between Nanyang Technology University (NTU, Singapore) and the CEA on Monday, October 23, in Singapore.


The agreement was signed by Ms Laurence Piketty, Deputy Director General of the CEA, and Prof Lam Khim Yong, Vice President Industry of NTU, under the auspices of Ms Sylvie Retailleau, Minister for Higher Education and Research, and Mr Heng Swee Keat, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore.

This agreement formally launches the joint NTU/CEA SAFE laboratory (for "Singapore Alliance with France for Fusion Energy"), with a budget of around $20m over 5 years. This collaboration will be based on the CEA’s expertise in fusion science and technology as NTU’s expertise in artificial intelligence and plasma diagnostics.

Led by Xavier Garbet, Research Director at CEA-IRFM and Professor at Nanyang Technological University, this laboratory aims to advance the theory and modelling of magnetized plasmas using first-principles simulations and artificial intelligence tools. Additionally, it will focus on the development and implementation of a gamma spectrometry diagnostic on WEST, in connection with a disruption modeling program.
