Abstract: FOR THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF FUSION POWER REACTORS THE FIRST WALL AND BLANKET MATERIALS MUST WITHSTAND 100 TO 300 DPA IN THEIR LIFETIME. PRESENT-DAY AVAILABLE MATERIALS ARE FAR FROM WITHSTANDING SUCH REQUIREMENTS. THEREFORE, IN PARALLEL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF FUSION ENGINEERING REACTORS SUCH AS NET AND FER, A MASSIVE FUSION REACTOR MATERIALS TEST AND DEVELOPMENT PRO- GRAMME HAS TO BE FORWARDED THAT PRODUCES A VALID TECHNOLOGICAL DATA BASE FOR THE DESING OF A DEMONSTRATION REACTOR. IN THIS CONTEXT WE DISCUSS THE LIMITA- TIONS OF THE VARIOUS METHODS, PRESENTLY IN USE TO SIMULATE THE EFFECTS OF 14 MEV NEUTRONS, BASED ON THE USE OF SELF-ION, LIGHT-ION HIGH-ENERGY PROTON BEAMS AND FISSION NEUTRONS
