JET, based at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), UK, is the central research facility of the European Fusion Programme, and it is the largest and most successful fusion experiment in the world. JET is collectively used under EUROfusion management by more than 40 European laboratories. Over 350 scientists and engineers from all over Europe contribute to the JET programme.
Contract extension signed between the European Commission and CCFE secures JET operation until 2020. The extension secures at least €100m in additional inward investment from the EU over the next two years.
