China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the USA are working together to deliver the most advanced fusion machine in history. The ITER project will be the largest experimental fusion device in history, and aims to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion as a power source for the future. Thousands of scientists, engineers, companies and laboratories around the world are involved in this first-of-a-kind project which is being constructed in the south of France. The Broader Approach (BA) Agreement, concluded between the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) and Japan, consists of activities which aim to complement the ITER project and accelerate the development of fusion. Created at the same time as the ITER Project in 2006, the “Broader Approach Agreement” (English version/ Japanese version) was signed on February 5th 2007 in Tokyo and entered into force on June 1st 2007. The BA strives to push forward the development of fusion technology and prepare for the device that will follow ITER, called DEMO. Unlike ITER, DEMO will aim to produce electricity from the fusion energy generated within it. Under the BA Agreement, the EU and Japan are working together on three fusion-related projects, all located in Japan.
