Management: Training, Orientation and Quality Assurance
To maintain the quality of the support and atomic physics delivery from ADAS-EU, a number of mechanisms are required. These are quality assurance measures on data and code packages generated under ADAS-EU, annual training courses on "ADAS and atomic calculations for fusion" for researchers world-wide who wish more intensive training and the annual ADAS Workshop where critical discussion and review of the impact of ADAS and ADAS-EU on fusion research may take place.
