When: Thursday 31 July 2014

David Campbell will present Director's Colloquium, 12:00pm Thursday 31 July Leonard Huxley Lecture Theatre, Building 56, Mills Road

stablished by the ITER Agreement in November 2006 and sited in the highlands of Provence in southern France, the ITER

project involves the European Union (including Switzerland), China, India, Japan, the Russian Federation, South Korea and

the United States. ITER is a critical step in the development of fusion energy: its role is to confirm the feasibility of exploiting

magnetic confinement fusion for the production of energy for peaceful purposes.

 

 

 

 

Established by the ITER Agreement in November 2006 and sited in the highlands of Provence in southern France, the ITER project involves the European Union (including Switzerland), China, India, Japan, the Russian Federation, South Korea and the United States. ITER is a critical step in the development of fusion energy: its role is to confirm the feasibility of exploiting magnetic confinement fusion for the production of energy for peaceful purposes.

Construction of the facility is advancing both at the ITER site and in factories around the world: the major components of the facility are being supplied ‘in-kind’, i.e. as contributions funded directly by each of the 7 partners and mostly manufactured, in the partners’ own industries. Agreements covering almost 90% of the facility’s value have already been established and the lecture will illustrate the progress being made in some of the major manufacturing activities.
