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.

This website contains information on community workshops held to enable community presentation and discussion focused on the NAS charges.
