PDDG Norbert Holtkamp giving an update of the ITER project status to the STAC members.
This week, the ancient Château de Cadarache is once again witness to another chapter being written in the history of the ITER project. Starting today, 19 May, the International Science and Technology Advisory Committee (STAC) convenes in Cadarache to discuss the final design of ITER, the machine's scope and the schedule up to First Plasma. From Wednesday onwards, the Management Advisory Committee (MAC) will follow. The recommendations made by these two committees will go to the ITER Council, the supervising body of the ITER project, that will meet in Aomori, Japan, on 18 June. return to Newsline #32
