The ITER project and future fusion devices will require highly skilled people. To face these needs, a programme called PREFIT has been created, with its kick-off meeting held in Tampere, Finland, last December.

The PREFIT research projects have been chosen to deliver results which are of relevance to ITER and to the wider remote handling community. The areas covered include: virtual/augmented reality, integration of humans and computers for remote handling, high quality remote joining of pipes, control system standards for remote handling, real time condition monitoring and sensors for remote inspection inside the ITER torus.
