ITER Open Doors Day
ITER regularly opens its doors to the public.
Organized in close collaboration with the European Domestic Agency Fusion for Energy—which is responsible for all building on site—the ITER Open Doors days are a great opportunity for the public to discover the giant construction works underway in Saint Paul-lez-Durance for ITER and to learn about fusion and the scientific goals of ITER.
Educative videos, slideshows, mockups, conferences, and guided tours will be arranged all throughout the day (English tours in the morning, French tours from 11:00 a.m. on).
Keep your eye on the ITER website for the date of the next Open Doors Day.
