Résumé/Abstract  :

Turbulent transport in fusion plasmas is now a “well established” science. However it was an emerging topic in the early 80’s. Telling its story through some milestones seems a good way to make an overview. The talk will start with the decade 1980-90, when turbulent transport became the undisputed explanation for confinement power degradation, leaving however many observations unexplained. The second decade 1990-2000 saw the fast and simultaneous development of heavy numerical simulations and reduced models, with some surprises. The talk will cover briefly the last twenty years 2000-2020, and explains how the subject reached maturity.
