ZOOM on the ITER project

– In numbers:
– More than 20 billion euros
– 35 countries
– 2nd largest science project after the International Space Station

This colossal international project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of industrial and commercial exploitation of fusion energy.
Beyond nuclear fusion, ITER acts as a generator of projects and technologies dedicated to the energies of the future.

Welcome Around ITER
Network of partners established in Provence whose role is to understand the needs of companies related to ITER and to facilitate their implementation in the territory.
