"Climate change", second sentence in the introduction. Well, there goes their credibility. Fusion energy does not need a bogus climate crisis to justify it.

This would appear to be another PRC front for gaining access to tech and research, IMHO.

China already has the EAST tokamak and the ShenGuang-III laser facility, but I'm not aware of much research going on into alternative confinement concepts. This would put China at a disadvantage if one of the private fusion efforts succeeded before ITER or NIF, especially since private companies are more secretive than universities, so it appears they're looking to hedge their bets:

(April 2018 - Jaeyoung Park was one of the invited speakers.)

It looks to me like ENN doesn't even have a specific confinement concept. They're just fishing for one, and/or the expertise that comes along with it. Or, at least, that was the case about a year ago. I wonder if anyone took the bait.
Temperature, density, confinement time: pick any two.
