ITER platform

Finding your way

The ITER platform has all the attributes of a small town. It has landmark buildings, winding roads and large avenues, traffic lights and stop signs. It is a bustling world of people and vehicles, of projects spanning the scope of construction and industry. It is a place where 35 nations were brought together to prepare the future of our civilization. In this map, we have identified 28 buildings and facilities, some already operational, some at various stages of construction, and few not yet started. Other features—such as overhead bridges and roads—are not yet marked. In a few years, we will need an updated map to find our way on the ITER platform.
