This information is part of the Open Yearbook, a free service of UIA's subscription-based Yearbook of International Organizations (YBIO). It includes profiles of non-profit organizations working worldwide in all fields of activity. The information contained in the profiles and search functionality of this free service are limited.

The full-featured Yearbook of International Organizations (YBIO) includes over 70,000 organization profiles, additional information in the profiles, sophisticated search functionality and data export. For more information about YBIO, please click here or contact us.

The UIA is a leading provider of information about international non-profit organizations. The aim of the Open Yearbook is to promote the activities of international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) and intergovernmental organizations (IGOs).

History

30 May 1978, when statutes were adopted, as a research programme of European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom), to construct and operate the Joint European Torus (JET). Evolved into a physics and technology basis for preparing for ITER. Organization under its original title JET Joint Undertaking superseded 31 Dec 1999, with ownership of the JET Facilities transferred to the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) - Culham Division, under JET Operation Contract (JOC), and overall implementation and coordination carried out under European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA), through the JET Implementation Agreement (JIA). Superseded by European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy (EUROfusion), Oct 2014.

Aims

Attempt to control thermonuclear fusion as a virtually inexhaustible and non-polluting source of energy; within the European nuclear fusion programme, construct, operate and exploit the 'Joint European Torus', a large torus facility of tokamak-type, and its auxiliary facilities, so as to extend the parameter range applicable to controlled thermonuclear fusion experiments close to those needed in a thermonuclear reactor. Study: plasma processes and scaling laws; interaction of plasma with walls of the torus chamber; methods of heating plasma to temperatures required in a reactor; behaviour of energetic alpha particles produced as a result of fusion between deuterium and tritium; control of impurities in plasma.
