By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Physics and Astronomy, Plasma Science Committee, Committee to Review the U.S. ITER Science Participation Planning Process

ITER provides the USA and its foreign companions with the chance to discover new and interesting frontiers of plasma technology whereas bringing the promise of fusion strength toward fact. The ITER venture has garnered the dedication and should draw at the medical strength of 7 overseas companions, China, the eu Union, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia, and the us, nations that symbolize greater than 1/2 the world's inhabitants. The luck of ITER depends upon each one partner's skill to totally have interaction itself within the clinical and technological demanding situations posed via advancing our knowing of fusion. during this booklet, the nationwide study Council assesses the present U.S. division of strength (DOE) plan for U.S. fusion neighborhood participation in ITER, evaluates the plan's parts, and recommends acceptable targets, techniques, and metrics for attention sooner or later improvement of the plan.

The fusion com­ munity has recently started to address issues of evolving the domestic research program. The FESAC report, Priorities, Gaps, and Opportunities: Towards a Long-Range Strategic Plan for Magnetic Fusion Energy,10 reiterates requirements for a vital and forward-looking domestic research program to exploit knowledge gained in ITER through international cooperation, and it suggests initiatives to bridge knowledge gaps to DEMO. A recent NRC report, Plasma Science: Advancing Knowledge in the National Interest, recommended the formulation and periodic updating of a 15-year stra­ tegic plan for burning plasma research, which this committee endorses.
