Between October 2001 and 2003 Alejaldre was also Director of ITER Spain, responsible for preparing and presenting Spanish proposals for siting ITER in Vandellós. So there should be no doubt concerning his commitment to the project in which he sees "the global solution for the future". As Deputy Director General Alejaldre will be responsible for all safety and security issues of ITER, for all the necessary licensing issues, and for the assurance of a nuclear safety culture in ITER. "It´s my professional challenge to make ITER materialize. This is the right project at the right moment."
