The NIA welcomes news that the future of the Joint European Torus (JET) project’s funding has been secured, with a new contract signed between the UK and the European Commission.


In response to the announcement, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive, Nuclear Industry Association said:

“The nuclear industry has long called for clarity over the future of JET, and today we welcome the new contract which secures program funding until the end of 2020.

“This is particularly important for our member companies, and the 500+ members of staff, who are engaged with the cutting-edge research on JET, in Oxford.

“The scientific collaboration between the JET and ITER projects, is a positive example of the international nature of the civil nuclear industry, across both fusion and fission, and we will continue to do all we can to support these projects as they progress.”
