Where do you go if you need a hi-res photo of KSTAR? Is there a scientifically-accurate animation of plasma in ITER? Does anyone have a model of the most recent ITER design? Which Russian science magazines should we be targeting? How can we keep our staff informed? These were some of the questions at a two-day meeting held in the US Domestic Agency in Oak Ridge, Tennessee this week. But the underlying question was: how can communicators in the ITER Domestic Agencies help each other?
Many people are communicating about ITER and the aim of the ITER Communication Group is to make this activity as efficient and cost effective as possible by avoiding parallel activities and sharing best practice. Great progress is being made and the Domestic Agency communicators are determined to work as one team rather than eight different entities. Many thanks to US/ITER for the impeccable organization and southern hospitality.
