The ITER Project Associate (IPA) Scheme allows Home Institutes from the ITER Members to assign employees on technical as well as support activities to the ITER Organization. Through this scheme, Home Institute employees can contribute with their expertise to strengthen international cooperation and integration between the ITER Organization Central Team and the Domestic Agencies/ITER Members.
The IPA scheme is open to any Home Institute who has signed a Memorandum of Understanding or Agreement (MoU/MoA) or Cooperation Agreement (CA) with the ITER Organization, defining areas of common interest. The IPA(s) will perform activities for the ITER Organization for a period of time defined by an Implementing Agreement signed between the Home Institute and the ITER Organization.
The proposed IPA(s) must be employed of the Home Institute (HI) at the time of submission of the proposal Click for more detailed information on ITER Project Associate Scheme (PN7SU5) IPA opportunities are limited to nationals from countries participating in the ITER Project (China, the European Union plus Switzerland, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States).
