picture of Francesco RomanelliAs 2006 comes to an end, I want to thank everybody for all their valuable contributions and commitment to JET. We have had some diffi culties in the recent past but have been able to overcome these problems, restart JET operations and are now achieving signifi cant performance.
ITER signature in Paris on 21st November *The European Legal Entity will be a European Joint Undertaking for ITER called “Fusion for Energy”.
In addition, the JET enhancement programme has made a huge step forward with the final approval of the procurement budget.
All this is of particular importance in this crucial year for fusion research, with the signing of the ITER agreement and the interest this has caused.
I wish everybody a prosperous 2007 and all the best for you and your families.
Dr Francesco Romanelli
