ITER: EU workshop facilitation with GOPACOM

Over the course of 2023, the European Commission has been organising visits in ITER for high school teachers. The objective is to show firsthand the ITER site so teachers can promote STEM across the classes.

Every quarter, a visit is organised, split as follow:

  • Site visit;
  • Introduction of the engineering behind it;
  • The work done by the Fusion For Energy;
  • A workshop on how to teach about fusion to teachers.

Consultants from Damona have been involved in the workshop, crafting and managing it to ensure the best transmission of knowledge methods. The activities executed ranged from brainstorming to managing groups of teachers – totalising 40 people – and summarising the wide range of ideas suggested by the teachers from all over the European Union.

At Damona, we highly value such initiatives, as we believe in the importance of promoting science and STEM-related roles to future generations for the benefit of all. The projects completed in September 2023 and March 2024 exemplify how Damona actively engages in social value opportunities and networks, especially within the nuclear and energy sectors.
