Aims of the project: ITER as well as the Associations operating the existing experimental devices need trained engineers with a high level of understanding of both the technology and physics possibilities and limitations of tokamak operation. In the long-term fusion programme, preparation of a new generation of control room staff, capable of planning the commissioning, restart, and operation activities, is essential. The COMPASS device is a small scale experiment offering hands-on experience and thus providing deeper insight and understanding for the trainee. Therefore, the trainee will be dedicated to participation in the COMPASS restart activities, trained in COMPASS operation and involved in the commissioning of its systems. Concerning Tokamak integration issues, case studies will be applied to ITER and W7X. Visiting periods will be planned in both facilities in order to get acquainted with the respective CODAC systems.
