ITER (« The Way » in Latin) is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today.

In southern France, 35 nations* are collaborating to build the world’s largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars.

The experimental campaign that will be carried out at ITER is crucial to advancing fusion science and preparing the way for the fusion power plants of tomorrow.

« ITER is a unique fusion science and technology research facility. It represents a key milestone for the future of energy : safe, economically sound, environmentally friendly ».
Bernard Bigot, ITER Organization Director-General
