Strategic & Scientific Advisory Board (SSAB)

Chairman of the Gauss Fusion SSAB

Frédérick Bordry is the Chair of the Gauss Fusion Strategic & Scientific Advisory Board (SSAB). Frédérick obtained a PhD in electrical engineering from Institute National Polytechnique de Toulouse - INPT in 1978, he then obtained his State Doctorate in Sciences in the same institution, in 1985, after two years of at Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil), he started his career with CERN in 1986. Gaining experience in various positions he was appointed Director for Accelerators and Technology at CERN in 2014, responsible for operation of the CERN accelerator complex, with emphasis on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the development of new projects (post LHC accelerators) and technologies. Frédérick has managed many large projects (annual budget 400 M€) and covering a range of advanced technologies from superconductivity, power conversion, cryogenics, vacuum systems, coatings and surface treatments to complex process control. He has been a long-time advocate for sustainability in energy science. He is main initiator of the workshop “Energy for Sustainable Science at Research Infrastructures”. Since 2021, he has been an honorary member of CERN, advisor to the Director General of CERN and scientific advisor to several institutions, industries and start-ups.
