300 will begin moving into Headquarters extension late October

Large open-space offices will accomodate up to 24 desks. (Click to view larger version...)
Large open-space offices will accomodate up to 24 desks.
Some 300 ITER collaborators, most of them "external," will begin moving into the newly built, 3,500 m² Headquarters extension in late October.

The extension's architecture and furnishings closely replicate those of the main Headquarters building. However, there will be more "open space" offices, accommodating up to 24 desks each.

On the first floor a vast "Virtual reality room," comparable to the one at the neighbouring CEA-Cadarache centre, is being readied for total 3D immersion into the innards of the ITER Tokamak.

The Headquarters building plus extension will provide close to 900 desks to ITER staff and external collaborators. However, approximately 100 people will remain in the pre-fabricated buildings B81 (formerly ITER Headquarters) and B82, mostly for operational reasons.
