Current Status of Broader Approach (BA) Activity

  • BA activity is composed of the complementary R&D project to be conducted in parallel with ITER project for the construction of the fusion DEMO reactor.
  • IFERC, IFMIF/EVEDA, and Satellite Tokamak, are in progress as scheduled.
  • Various procurement agreements have been made or being prepared for "in-kind" contributions.
  • All the research buildings are completed in March 2010, and "in-kind" components, such as experimental equipments for DEMO R&D, high performance computer and its peripheral systems for CSC, accelerator components and its peripheral systems, will be installed in near future.
