NAS Decadal Assessment of Plasma Science


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is conducting the Decadal Assessment of Plasma Science—Plasma 2020—with support from the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the Office of Naval Research.  Plasma 2020 will provide an overview of accomplishments in all fields of plasma science and technology during the previous decade; and provide guidance and recommendations for the coming decade on the most critical plasma science challenges whose solutions will lead to societal benefit. It is expected that Plasma 2020 will be highly influential in establishing priorities for plasma–focused agencies, both in the US and internationally.
