English: ITER (originally an acronym of International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering project, which is currently building the world's largest and most advanced experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor at Cadarache in the south of France. The ITER project aims to make the long-awaited transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power plants. The project is funded and run by seven member entities - the European Union (EU), India, Japan, the People's Republic of China, Russia, South Korea and the United States. The EU, as host party for the ITER complex, is contributing 45% of the cost, with the other six parties contributing 9% each.
Français : ITER (originellement en anglais : International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor ou en français : « réacteur thermonucléaire expérimental international ») est un projet de réacteur nucléaire à fusion actuellement en construction à proximité de Cadarache (France). Ce projet est destiné à vérifier la « faisabilité scientifique et technique de la fusion nucléaire comme nouvelle source d’énergie ».
