Skills and projects

The research activities and the qualification of IFP within the scientific community are divided into several Research Areas, with the aim of enhancing existing skills and promoting the development of new ones in line with the new Organization and Operation Regulation (ROF) of the National Research Council.

A Research Area is defined as an ensemble of skills whereby IFP researchers and technologists share their experience and expertise to carry out research activities within national and international projects, service contracts, free-of-charge themed research activities.

In addition, and in accordance with the CNR's Organization and Operation Regulation (ROF, June 1st, 2015), the management and operational organization of the Institute's activities are carried out in the form of projects, each of which is considered in bijective correspondence with one and only active contract, Grant, or other kind of external funding of the Institute, and so each one is defined.

Examples of Topics and Skills currently  IFP are as follows:

  1. Theory & Modeling
  2. Diagnostic
  3. Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH)
  4. Plasma and laboratory technologies
