Welcome to the website for U.S. Magnetic Fusion Research (MFR) Strategic Directions

The National Academies of Sciences (NAS), Engineering, and Medicine has been charged to prepare an interim report and a final report focused on the importance of burning plasmas in the future of U.S. fusion energy development, along with consideration of the scientific and engineering challenges and opportunities on the path toward fusion energy, and possible scenarios to achieve that goal.  The NAS charge is located here: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/BPA/BPA_177107 and here.

Following the Madison workshop, we are organizing 2 additional community workshops to enable community presentation & discussion focused on the NAS charges.
