To recognize specific improvement contributions made in 2013-2014 to the project, a total of 27 commendations were given in three categories: cross-functional teams, improvements through the Ideas Network, and nominations—a new category added following a suggestion from staff, in order to enable them to thank their colleagues.

Commendation awardees (people or teams) were selected in a transparent process aligned to project priorities, as agreed by the ITER Organization directors at the Organizational Efficiency Steering Committee (OESC) and approved by the Director-General.
