More than 400 ITER employees and contractors listend to the project update given by DG Ikeda.
The three buses that had been hired to transport ITER employees to the Salle Polyvalente last Wednesday 4 June to attend the All-Staff meeting, proved to be barely sufficient to transport the ever-growing ITER crowd. Not surprising because although the ITER Organization currently counts 256 directly employed staff, adding all on-site subcontractors and temporary staff. "All-ITER" now totals more than 400 people, representing 24 nationalities.
In his talk, Kaname Ikeda focused on the Project Baseline which, to be achieved, requires more manpower. Ikeda further outlined the construction progress with focus on the new temporary office buildings on the ITER site; he touched on ITER's Collaboration Agreements with CERN and the Principality of Monaco; and he gave an update on the development of the International School. return to Newsline #35
