​ST PAUL-LEZ-DURANCE, France (14 May 2022) – Dr Bernard Bigot, Director-General of the ITER Organization passed away on 14 May 2022 due to illness. An inspirational leader for more than four decades across multiple fields of science and energy, his personal dedication and commitment to ITER over the past seven years shaped every aspect of the project. While his untimely passing will be felt as a tragic blow to the global fusion community, Dr Bigot’s careful design and preparation of the ITER senior management team in recent years gives reassurance of the project’s continued success. His deputy, Dr Eisuke Tada—a widely respected leader in the fusion community and a seasoned veteran from ITER’s earliest days—will take over leadership of the project while the ITER Council launches the search for a long-term successor to Dr Bigot.


  On April 10th. 2021, the ITER Gas Injection System Manifold Manufacture project undertaken by China Nuclear Industry Construction 23 Co., Ltd.(CNI23) has been completed in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, and the last batch of products will be delivered to France in the near future.  Dr. LUO Delong, the Director-General of China International Nuclear Fusion Energy Program Execution Center (ITER China), and relative persons of Institute of Plasma Physics (CAS), CNI23, and Southwestern Institute of
