The fourth joint communication meeting was held at the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow.
The communication staff from the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies (DA) met this week in Moscow to join forces and to orchestrate their work. This fourth joint meeting was hosted by the Russian Domestic Agency based at the world famous Kurchatov Institute where fusion history was written.

Taking a tour back in time, senior scientist Leonid Khimchenko showed the group around two of the Institute's power horses, the tokamaks T-10 and the T-15, with which precious knowledge has been gained since 1975 — and is still being gained.

As the Director-General of the Russian DA, Anatoli Krasilnikov, was still negotiating the project's path forward with his colleagues from the ITER Organization and the other DAs back in Cadarache on Monday, his deputy Sergey Soldatov welcomed the guests on his behalf. "We are very much aware that any project of this scale [...] needs to be efficiently presented to state authorities as well as to the mass media, the scientific community and the public," Soldatov addressed the auditorium. "Your mission is strongly needed; otherwise this project becomes a black hole."
