The first part of the course consists of three one-hour sessions introducing the topics of first wall, blanket, and heat transport. The first session covers the crucial aspects of the first wall and blanket in fusion systems, emphasizing their significance for component protection, tritium breeding, and power generation. The subsequent session delves into the intricacies of heat transport and the balance of plant, encompassing grid infrastructure considerations.

Following this, the second part offers also three one-hour sessions covering fusion power plants, scaling from ITER to DEMO, and power plant economics/supply chain. The sessions begin with an exploration of fusion power plants and their top-level requirements, followed by an analysis of the challenges associated with scaling up from ITER to DEMO/Pilot plant. The final session addresses fusion economics, the fusion supply chain, and the broader role of fusion in the energy market, providing insights into the economic aspects of fusion power generation.
