ITER aborde aujourd'hui une étape majeure de son histoire. Au terme de trois années consacrées au défrichage, au nivellement et à l'aménagement de la plateforme, la construction des bâtiments de l'installation va bientôt commencer.

Dans les mois qui viennent, trois chantiers vont s'ouvrir: le creusement de la fosse du tokamak; la construction du bâtiment où seront assemblées certains des éléments de la machine et, au pied de la plateforme, le siège d'ITER Organization.

Le programme ITER, dans lequel trente-quatre nations sont engagées, est une entreprise scientifique sans équivalent dans l'histoire. Ces pages la racontent et en expliquent les enjeux.
