Short description

Some call it "the Holy Grail of energy," skeptics are making jokes that it “will always be another 50 years away" - nuclear fusion is indeed the ultimate energy source, essential for the future of the modern civilization, but it is also one of the biggest challenges for scientists and engineers around the world.


During this five-day workshop, students of sciences and ebgineering will learn from the noted European specialists about science and technology that has been developed in the last few decades in order to achieve fusion on Earth. In addition, they will experience, for one day, what it looks like to work as an experimental physicists on existing fusion experiments.


Tokamak GOLEM - one of the smallest and oldest tokamaks - is intended primarily for education and training of students at the Czech Technical University in Prague. It is also known for being the smallest tokamak in the world with the largest control room - this tokamak can be controlled remotely via the Internet.
