The DEMOnstration power plant, DEMO, is research on the transition from ITER to DEMO. Driving fusion to go from a science-driven, lab-based exercise to an industry-driven and technology-driven programme.
The engineering research activity is a balanced programme of integration, design, technology development, and verification, all aimed at reducing the principle plant level risks (unmaintainable plant architecture, poor maintenance performance, incorrect design choices, licencing issues, availability, and economics) before they become real issues during a more expensive engineering and constructions phases.
