Sabina GriffithOn 9 October French local authorities (the PACA Regional Council,plus theCommunauté des Pays d'Aix and six Departmental Councils: Bouches-du—Rhone, Var, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Hautes-Alpes, Vaucluse and Alpes-Maritimes) put their signatures to the financial agreement that confirms their support for ITER to the tune of 467 M Euro. When the contributions of the French State and of the CEA, their partners in this financial agreement, are taken into account, the total reaches 735 M Euro. The financial package is for the actual experiment, schooling, land management, and transport (notably modifications in some parts of the 100km road to take the wide loads from the harbour to the ITER site), but also for a cash contribution to the financing of the Project through the EU.
