Three recent influential national reports released in 2018-2020 have signaled major change in the path of fusion research in the US with the adoption of a mission to build a fusion pilot plant in the US and the push towards commercial fusion energy. In this new era, how can fusion industry, fission industry, national labs, universities, and professional societies work together? What could or should the role of the American Nuclear Society be in the future of fusion? This panel will discuss recent advancements in fusion and what the future holds. It will feature experts from professional societies, government funding agencies, industry, and the scientific community.
The panel moderators will be Lauren Garrison (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) and Paul Humrickhouse (Idaho National Laboratory)
