On June 4th a Slovenian delegation visited the ITER construction site in Provence, France. The delegation was led by the Slovenian Ambassador in France, Mr. Andrej Slapničar, and included representatives from Cosylab which has been contributing to ITER since 2008.

ITER’s Director General, Mr. Bernard Bigot, praised the contribution of Slovenian academia and industry (Cosylab being the biggest contributor) and stressed the importance of participating countries continuing their support for the project. The delegation was also briefed on the progress of the construction and taken on a tour of the construction site, where they could really appreciate the scale of the project.

The visit to ITER coincided with the international EPICS Collaboration Meeting that was held there this week, and which was sponsored by Cosylab.
