On Saturday 8 October 2016 the ITER Organization, in collaboration with Agence Iter France and the European agency for ITER, Fusion for Energy, will open its doors to the public.

For the 8th edition of the ITER Open Doors Day the public will have a unique opportunity to visit the Assembly Hall, where the main components of the ITER Tokamak will be prepared and pre-assembled. From inside the frame of this 60-metre-tall building, which is still under construction, visitors will have one of the best panoramic views of work currently underway on the Tokamak Complex, future home to the ITER fusion device.

Visits will take place between 9:00 a.m. and 16:30 p.m.

Please note that English language visits will take place from 9:00 to 10:30 only. All visits from 10:30 onwards will be in French only.

When you arrive at ITER Headquarters in Saint Paul-lez-Durance, park your car in the parking lot for visitors. Shuttle buses running approximately every 15 minutes will take you to the worksite canteen on the ITER platform where a general presentation on ITER will be available. In this canteen you will also be able to buy refreshments, sandwiches and snacks.

From there, it’s only a short walk to the Visitors Centre, where you can view mock-ups of the ITER machine and construction site and videos on various aspects of the project.

Buses leaving the worksite canteen approximately every 30 minutes will take you on a one-hour tour of the construction site, with a stop near the Assembly Hall. Visitors will have the possibility to leave the bus, put on mandatory safety equipment, and walk into the ITER Assembly Hall.

At the end of the visit, the bus will return you to the visitors parking lot.
