With the objective of contributing to the European development of materials, technologies and facilities for the demonstration of the thermonuclear fusion, the construction of the unique TechnoFusión facility was planned in 2009. The TechnoFusión consortium, formed by selected Spanish research groups and laboratories located in Madrid, has jointly advanced in the search for solutions to the remaining technological issues of nuclear fusion by magnetic and inertial confinement. In addition, the foundation of the TechnoFusión partnership has been essential to create a network of collaborations, and also to expand and specialize human resources, by training scientists and technical staff in the use of high-tech tools. Supported by the TechnoFusión_Comunidad Madrid (III) regional programme, the consortium is focused on providing support for the construction of medium-sized, relevant facilities in Madrid (Spain). Regarding magnetic and inertial fusion issues, the programme is structured in several key experiments and infrastructures, which combine the development of materials, of cutting-edge technologies and the construction of associated facilities, with the progress in simulation and application of computational neutronics.
