ITER Talks

All about ITER and fusion

Beginning this autumn, the ITER Organization will be launching a new video series to inform, inspire and educate. The first video—introducing the series and offering a general overview of the ITER Project—is available now.

For a unique scientific organization, the preservation and transfer of knowledge is a critical activity. The new ''ITER Talks,'' based on a successful in-house series that concluded in 2018, will offer the fusion community and the broader public short presentations on a wide variety of ITER topics—from science and technology, to construction, assembly, safety, quality, and nuclear licensing.

For a unique scientific organization, the preservation and transfer of knowledge is a critical activity. The new ''ITER Talks,'' based on a successful in-house series that concluded in 2018, will offer the fusion community and the broader public short presentations on a wide variety of ITER topics—from science and technology, to construction, assembly, safety, quality, and nuclear licensing.
In September 2021, the ITER Organization will be launching a series of videotaped talks on the science and technology of ITER. Filmed in the ITER studio with experts in every domain, ITER Talks aims to inform and educate viewers about the specificities of ITER, fusion science, and fusion engineering, and address some of the project management challenges of such a complex, world-spanning endeavour. Approximately 30 videos are planned, for release at regular intervals.

Based on an in-house series of lectures that ran in 2018, ITER Talks is part of a broader knowledge management program at the ITER Organization. The program aims to identify and preserve the knowledge and expertise that exists within the project, and to share and disseminate this knowledge both within the organization and globally, as a way to promote fusion. The series is fully supported by the International Atomic Energy Agency, which considers this initiative as a stepping-stone for other educational initiatives in the future.

The first video—"Introduction to ITER"—was recorded by ITER Head of Communication, Laban Coblentz. Why have 35 nations agreed to collaborate for four decades to realize the ITER program? What are the advantages of fusion and how can it contribute to the world's energy dilemma? How does a tokamak work? What is unique about ITER? What is the status of the project today?

Watch "Introduction to ITER" on the ITER Talks page of the organization's YouTube channel.
