In June 2000, as part of its action on Women and Science, the Commission launched a series of gender impact assessment studies to assess the way in which gender issues are being addressed within the Fifth Framework Programme. The studies scanned the implementation procedures of the specific programmes and the research agenda set in the areas covered by the(More)
Introduction Burning plasma science is recognized widely as the next frontier in fusion research. FIRE [1, 2] is a design study of a next step burning plasma experiment with the goal of developing a concept for an experimental facility to explore and understand the strong non-linear coupling among confinement, MHD self-heating, stability, edge physics and(More)
1 In the electronic economy, the middleman role will disappear and be disintermediated by information technology. 2 3 In the electronic economy, the movement of physical goods will be replaced by the movement of information. 4 5 In the electronic economy, the value chain model is a good model for thinking about an extended enterprise. 6 7 Ubiquitous access(More)
The emerging electronic economy is bringing with it new forms of IT-enabled intermediation, 1Robert Zmud was the accepting senior editor for this paper. Also, an earlier version of this paper won first prize in the 1997 SIM Paper Competition. virtual supply chains, rapidly changing electronic commerce technologies, increasing knowledge intensity, and(More)
Introduction The ARIES fusion power plant studies [1,2] have determined that an economically competitive tokamak fusion power plant must have high fusion gain (Q > 25), high fusion power density (~ 4 MWm-3) and steady-state plasma operation. These plasma requirements could be satisfied using an advanced tokamak scenario (β N ~ 5 and f bs ≈ 90%) based on a(More)
