I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity that the Fusion-EP programme has provided me. This master's programme has had a profoundly positive impact on both my academic and social life. Not only have I acquired a wealth of knowledge in plasma physics and nuclear fusion, but I have also had the privilege of immersing myself in new languages and cultures. The combination of studying at different universities and of spending time together during the Prague and Cadarache events has granted me a unique opportunity to interact with top scientists and engage in current research within this field. The memories I have forged through this programme will remain with me throughout my life.
