    • Abstract

       

      The ITER project, a collaboration of 35 countries to buildthe first industrial-scale fusion energy facility, is progressingin the south of France. ITER components are manufacturedin factories around the world, then shipped to the ITER sitefor assembly and installation. Strong progress towards FirstPlasma in 2025 has been possible due in part to substantialachievements in research and development on fusion technologiesto support ITER’s demanding engineering specifications.India is a core contributor.
