ITER is a vast subject that will take time to explore. Every few months we hope you’ll look forward to receiving news from the frontiers of ITER science and technology, the enterprising world of high-precision industry, and from the hilltop in Provence where it’s all coming together.

This magazine is for you. We’d be happy to receive your suggestions and remarks for its improvement at the email address listed below.
