Welcome to the 26th Eurofusion General Assembly!
Dates: July 17-18, 2019
Venue: Hotel Mercure Riga Centre, Elizabetes iela 101, Rīga, LV-1050
European fusion research under the Horizon 2020 framework and the EURATOM treaty is joined by a targeted 7-year (2014-2020) fusion program EUROfusion. The European fusion program is aimed at research in support of the ITER fusion reactor and the long-term, development and realization of the demonstration fusion power plant. The EUROfusion program is implemented by a consortium of EU Member States' fusion research units (a total of 30), where the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia (ISSP-UL) acts as a Latvian coordinator and partner in the consortium. The leading partner in the consortium is Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics in Garching, Germany. The decision-making body of the consortium is the General Assembly.
Taxi from the airport costs about 20 EUR (depend on trafic).
Green Baltic Taxi or red RedCab could be the safest choice due to the reasonable price. You can find these taxis in the second row. We also advise to ask the driver for an approximate price before you start the journey.
Another (the cheapest) alternative is installing a taxi aggregator application Bolt on your phone.
Bus ticket costs 2 EUR. It takes about 20-30 min to get to the city centre.
