All-hands meeting

 (Click to view larger version...)
After a football match, especially after a tricky one, the trainer gathers the players in the locker room to encourage them, to thank them. It had a touch of the same feeling last Wednesday when Director-General Osamu Motojima welcomed the ITER team in the brand-new amphitheatre of the ITER Headquarters. Director-General Motojima had called for this all-hands meeting in order to brief ITER Organization staff on the outcome of the recent meetings of the project's scientific and managerial advisory boards, the STAC and the MAC.
