IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on the Stellarator-Heliotron Concept
The International Energy Agency Technology Collaboration Programme on the Stellarator-Heliotron Concept (SH TCP) is a group of experts that promotes co-operative research on stellarators and heliotron fusion devices.
The objective of the SH TCP1, formerly known as Stellarator-Heliotron Implementing Agreement, is to improve the physics base of the Stellarator-Heliotron concept and to enhance the effectiveness and productivity of research and development efforts related to the Stellarator-Heliotron concept by strengthening the co-operation among IEA member countries.
The co-operative programme consists of the following activities:
- Exchanges of information
- Assignment of specialists to the facilities or research groups of the Contracting Parties
- Joint planning and co-ordination of experimental programmes in selected areas
- Workshops, seminars and symposia
- Joint theoretical, design and systems studies
- Exchanges of computer codes
- Joint experiments
