International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is a nuclear fusion demonstration project under construction on a 180ha site in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance in southern France. Established in 2007, the ITER Organization is a collaborative energy project involving 35 countries. It received the nuclear power operator license from the French authorities in 2012. The seven domestic agencies of the ITER include the European Union, India, Japan, South Korea, China, Russia, and the US. Fusion for Energy is the participant in the ITER project from the European Union. The project will generate 500MW of fusion power with an input heating power of 50MW. More than two-third of the project work laid-out for achieving first plasma reaction in December 2025 was completed by the end of 2019.
