Myriam Jacobs

Today it was fusion day for Nabuo Tanaka, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) based in Paris. During his visit to Cadarache he met ITER Director-General Kaname Ikeda and also Gabriel Marbach, Head of CEA Institute of Magnetic Fusion Research, who took Tanaka on a tour around Tore Supra.
