    More than 35 years, SCK•CEN participates in the Fusion Research and Development field providing its expertise for both technological and scientific challenges towards development of ITER and the commercial thermo-nuclear fusion power plant. Our research was focus mostly in the following four domains: • R&D on structural and first wall materials for fusion, targeting the role of neutron irradiation on physical and mechanical property changes • the plasma-wall interaction studies, mostly oriented towards the materials for Plasma Facing Components (PFC) and the Tritium fuel retention aspects; • the diagnostics, mostly focused on optical based systems and on the radiation resistance of materials, components and systems; • and finally the waste management and recycling, by using the return of experience from our developments and studies carried out for fission power.
