The 5th seminar of A3 Foresight Program on Key Issues of High Performance Plasma Sustainment (A3 program) was held in Kagoshima, Japan from 23rd to 26th June. This workshop was organized by National Institute of Fusion Science (NIFS); Li Jiangang, director of ASIPP, along with eight researchers attended the workshop. 

After the opening ceremony hosted by Professor Shigeru Morita, Japan principal investigator (PI), Li gave the report “EAST Next Five-Year Plan”. During the workshop, representatives from the three countries gave altogether 41 reports in three areas: steady state sustainment, edge and divertor plasma control and energetic particle-related issues. These reports cover the latest studies on major magnetic confined fusion devices in China, Japan and Korea; the upgrade of diagnostic and auxiliary heating system in the devices; cooperation on diagnostics and physics research, especially the advancement of energetic particle diagnostics; and progress in studies on the first wall. In addition, a special report on studies relevant to tungsten wall was newly added to this workshop. 

Hu Liqun, the Chinese principal investigator, declared the closing of the workshop. As discussed, ASIPP will undertake the next workshop, to be held in Nanning, Guangxi in January 2015. )

A3 Foresight Program 

Asia 3 Foresight Program is jointly set up by National Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), and National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). This cooperative research program supports two projects a year. 

In January 2012, the application for the joint project “Studies on Key Issues of High Performance Plasma Sustainment” was submitted separately by Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ASIPP), National Institute of Fusion Science (NIFS), Japan and National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI), Korea. Upon the offical approval in July, each institute received financial support of 4 million yuan respectively from NSFC, NRF, and JSPS for this five-year project.
