Report presented on 21 March 2019 by the European Commission on the implementation of Decision 2007/198/Euratom establishing the European Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy (F4E).
The ITER project is a unique case of international scientific collaboration between parties representing 80% of the world’s GDP. It has the purpose of exploring the feasibility of using fusion as an energy source for peaceful purposes. Following the signature of the ITER Agreement in 2006 between seven international partners, of which Euratom is one, the Council of the European Union adopted Decision 2007/198/Euratom (F4E).
F4E's primary function is to discharge Euratom's obligations regarding the ITER project and to carry out other ITER-related activities. F4E's members are Euratom, Euratom's Member States, and Switzerland. The Council Decision establishing F4E requires the preparation of a mid-term progress report on the implementation of the Decision, setting out the results of the use of the Euratom contribution in the multiannual financial period 2014-2020.
