Implementing an international organization requires the management of many parameters including administration and human resources. These matters were of great interest to the delegation of the Japanese Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) that came to visit ITER to begin a benchmarking study on how to proceed with setting up such a project.
The Director of JAEA's Paris office was accompanied by the Director of International Affairs and members of Fellowship Department. They met with Sophie Gourod for an overview of human resource activities. She gave them a general explanation of ITER policies on recruitment, training, fellowships, and administration and compliance with international regulations.
The visitors from Japan also met Emmanuelle Bellange, head of the Welcome Office at Agence ITER France, who presented the welcome activities offered to international staff and their families, before leading the delegation on a site tour. return to Newsline #119
