Ensuring that Europe makes the best possible use of the international ITER experiment is the focus of the EUROfusion Consortium. The EUROfusion ITER Physics programme develops plasma regimes of operation for ITER in order to prepare the European ITER experiments. It also carries out dedicated experiments on various fusion devices in order to answer questions for ITER. JET, the Joint European Torus, whose scientific programme is managed under EUROfusion, plays a central role for ITER.
