Viagem de estudo à construção do ITER


O Centro de Fusão Nuclear e a EUSJA convidam os jornalistas de ciência a visitarem as instalações do ITER que estão em construção em França. O Iter financia o alojamento mas a viagem é por conta do jornalista.

Os interessados devem enviar as inscrições para a direcção da ARCA com os dados pessoais:
nome, data de nascimento, lugar de nascimento, endereço residencial, cidade, código postal, país, nacionalidade, media, email, número de telemóvel.

A visita de estudo é no dia 22 e 23 de Abril e as candidaturas devem ser enviadas para a EUSJA até 31 de Março.

Aqui fica em inglês o programa da visita:

We agreed a visit to Cadarache in the South of France to learn more about the unique and outstanding project – ITER, which is at the forefront of energy technology research in the world. ITER, one of the world’s biggest scientific collaborations, has a key role to play in establishing fusion as a sustainable energy source. ITER being located on EU territory is a result of the international cooperation for research, it will be will be the world’s largest experimental fusion facility. .Fusion research is aimed at developing a safe, abundant and environmentally responsible energy source. ITER is also a first-of-a-kind global collaboration. Europe will contribute almost half of the costs of its construction, while the other six Members to this joint international venture (China, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA), will contribute equally to the rest. The ITER project is under construction in Cadarache, in the south of France.

More information on the ITER project you can find at:

Please see the preliminary programme for 2 days – 22 and 23 of April. The organizers will pay for 2 night (exceptionally 3 nights because of flight schedules) accommodation and meal for 15 EUSJA journalists. The participants have to get Aix-en-Provence (where will be accomodated in a hotel), the days of the trip they will be picked up and get back to the hotel by the organizers. The detailed programme with the instructions will be sent to the participants when we shall forward the list to Cadarache.

Friends, this trip was discussed with the organizers about several months and was accepted by the ITER hierarchy only today. Thus there will be a strong call: the applications must be sent by March 31, it is the very last deadline. I need to have the list by that time or we cannot pass the whole formalities!
