European Council decisions provide strong support for ITER


After almost five days of intense negotiations, EU leaders agreed on the new EU recovery fund to face the Covid-19 pandemic and the next seven-year budget, the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), a financial package of  €1.82 trillion. In this context, the European contribution to the ITER projects occupies a prominent place inside Large Scale Projects, under Heading 1 of the MFF “Single Market, Innovation and Digital”.

The financial envelope for ITER for the period 2021-2027 will be a maximum of EUR 5 000 million (constant 2018 prices), highlighting the continuous strong support of the European Union to ITER and the development of fusion energy.
