An exploratory study on gaps and pathways to a fusion DEMO plant of Korea (K-DEMO) has been carried out by referring to the frame of references developed based on the postulation of the commonalities of a fusion power plant with the nuclear power plants (NPPs) in the design process and methodologies, and operational characteristics. In the pathways to K-DEMO, cross-cuttings with the fusion R&D; activities of the other countries and utilizing the commonalities with the NPPs are discussed with the provision of open-innovation strategy that is one of the key strategies of K-DEMO program.
