Romanelli chair of EIROforum.

Francesco Romanelli, Leader of the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) and the Joint European Torus (JET) fusion project, is also now chair of the EIROforum, the European Intergovernmental Research Organizations forum. The EIRO consists of seven partner organizations representing such diverse research areas as fusion, molecular biology, high energy physics (CERN), the European Space Agency, astronomy, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility and neutron source research for condensed matter, chemistry and biology. The purpose of the forum is "to play an active and constructive role in promoting the quality and impact of European research."

Romanelli notes that, "Speaking as a group, the EIROforum has forged debates about the whole range of science an policy issues for the European Research Area."

He will be speaking at Fusion Power Associates 31st Annual Meeting and Symposium: Fusion Energy: Focus on the Future, December 1-2 in Washington, DC
