There were several French cabinet ministers and local politicians last Monday 3 May on the Jules-Horowitz Research (RJH) reactor worksite, next door to ITER. Prime Minister François Fillon had chosen CEA-Cadarache to deliver a speech on the economic stimulus package that the French government has devised to promote "Investments for the Future."

RJH, a nuclear research reactor that will also produce much-needed radio-elements for medical use, is partially funded by the EUR 35 billion stimulus package.

On his visit to Cadarache Prime Minister Fillon was accompanied by Valérie Pécresse, Minister of Higher Education and Research; Roselyne Bachelot, Minister of Health and Sports; and Christian Estrosi, Minister of Industry.
