Mirko Salewski from PPFE has been appointed to serve as Deputy Chair of the ITPA Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group (https://www.iter.org/org/team/fst/itpa/ep ) from now on. The ITPA (International Tokamak Physics Activity) is organized by ITER and coordinates high-priority fusion research activities in seven Topical Groups as basis for the ITER design and operation. As one of those seven groups, the Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group provides the experimental basis and theoretical knowledge to tackle the qualitatively new physics expected in ITER: dominant plasma self-heating by alpha particles. This Topical Group consists of 39 Members selected by the EU, USA, Japan, China, Russia, Korea, India, and Australia as well as a pool of Experts in the field.
