The Laboratory for Plasma Physics of the Ecole Royale Militaire / Koninklijke Militaire School (LPP-ERM/KMS) is conducting experimental and theoretical research on plasma physics and fusion energy in the framework of the European thermonuclear fusion research programme and has focused more particularly on the development of Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ICRH) systems.

Within this programme, LPP-ERM/KMS is an active partner, together with all the other European Fusion Laboratories, in the scientific exploitation of the JET facilities in Culham (UK), the W7-x stellarator and in preparing the Next Step devices of the world fusion program, ITER and DEMO.

LPP-ERM/KMS is also a member of the TEC, the Trilateral Euregio Cluster, which bundles the fusion efforts of LPP-ERM/KMS (Belgium), FOM-Rijnhuizen (the Netherlands) and IPP-Forschungzentrum Jülich (Germany).
