This week the keys for the Joint Worksite III (JWS 3) were officially handed over to the ITER Organization. Agence Iter France (AIF)—responsible for the construction of the new temporary office building—handed over the keys "on time and on budget," as AIF Director Jérôme Paméla pointed out.

JWS3 is a three-floor building, with space for up to 100 on each floor. The ITER Organization will occupy the ground floor, and the staff and site construction team from the European Domestic Agency F4E will move into the upper levels. Currently the network connections are being completed and people will start moving in at the end of next week.
