But this week the French capital is also the focus of the nuclear community, which gathers beginning Tuesday 28 June for the World Nuclear Exhibition, the world's largest show case for nuclear technology. ITER will hold up the fusion flag with a new exhibition booth at Stand 2B-S23. 

One day before the World Nuclear Exhibition officially opens its gates, around 500 students and young professionals from the field of nuclear energy convened for the sixth edition of the Atoms for the Future conference, an annual event organized by the French Nuclear Society Young Generation Network.

For the first time in the event's short history, fusion took to the Atoms for the Future stage, with ITER senior engineer Guenter Janeschitz invited to explain the project's goals and status.
