EUROfusion has launched the call for applications for the 2024 EUROfusion Engineering Grants (EEGs). These grants will provide funding for up to twenty outstanding early-career engineers to conduct research projects starting in the first half of 2024. The EUROfusion grant will cover their salaries under the EUROfusion funding rules as well as contribute to their research activities and missions for the duration of two years.
We encourage young engineers who are passionate about fusion research to apply for this opportunity. To be eligible, candidates must currently hold a master’s degree in engineering and have finished their degree within six years preceding the submission deadline. Interested candidates should jointly prepare their application with a EUROfusion consortium member or affiliated entity, who will submit the application and offer to employ the candidate for the proposed duration of the project.
The EUROfusion Engineering Grants support the education and training of a new generation of fusion engineers in alignment with the European Research Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy.
Interested candidates are invited to attend the EUROfusion Training and Education Office’s Q&A Information Session on Wednesday, 24 May 2023, at 14.00 CEST (connection details can be found on the EUROfusion wiki pages or requested by emailing EEG24application@euro-fusion.org).
