The Carolus Magnus Summer School is devoted to the theoretical and experimental aspects of high temperature plasmas confined in toroidal magnetic fields. The Summer School has a focus on the physics of energy production using controlled nuclear fusion. Here, special emphasis is laid on tokamaks, but stellarators and other confinement concepts are also discussed. The Summer School covers a broad area of Go-Symbol topics.

The Laboratory for Plasma Physics of the ERM/KMS Brussels and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN at Mol, the Institute for Energy and Climate Research - Plasma Physics at Research Centre Jülich, and DIFFER - Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research in Eindhoven are associated in the "Trilateral Euregio Cluster" (TEC), which is responsible for the organisation of the Carolus Magnus Summer Schools. The Summer School takes place every two years, usually in the month of September.

Most lectures are given by senior physicists from the TEC Institutes and by academic staff from the nearby universities of North Rhine-Westphalia, Belgium and the Netherlands. Usually, some lectures are also delivered by experts from other laboratories associated in the European fusion research programme and from ITER. Moreover, the programme contains evening lectures on special subjects.

The Carolus Magnus Summer School is primarily intended for PhD students as well as for master students who intend to become PhD students after the present academic year. Experienced scientists or engineers who, coming from other disciplines, recently entered the fields of plasma physics or nuclear fusion will also benefit from the school that will provide an overview of the various interconnected research domains. The Carolus Magnus Summer School does not only teach fusion basics, it also describes the latest developments on the way to the fusion power plant.
