Small or large, the companies involved in ITER have a lot to say about the benefits and skills acquired through their participation in the project.
Is it hard for companies to get involved in ITER?

Let's hear from some of those that have been awarded contracts for ITER construction and manufacturing.

In a series of videos, the European Domestic Agency talks with representatives of large European companies or consortia that are contributing their knowhow and expertise to the project.
