Composed of the leading scientists and engineers from the ITER Members' fusion communities, STAC was established to review the progress that the project is making in key areas of science and technology.
The ITER Science and Technology Advisory Committee (STAC) convened last week at ITER Headquarters for the fourteenth time in the history of the project.

Composed of the leading scientists and engineers from the ITER Members' fusion communities, STAC was established to review the progress that the project is making in key areas of science and technology.

Together with the ITER Management Advisory Committee (MAC), STAC makes recommendations that are submitted to the ITER Council.

The fourteenth session of STAC, last 14-16 May, covered a large range of topics, voicing concern over schedule but commending the ITER Organization for its efforts towards recovering delays and for the considerable progress made in the design, testing, validation and manufacturing of several components.

A column on the outcome of the meeting, by STAC Head Joaquin Sanchez, will be published in the upcoming issue of Newsline.
