ITER provides the USA and its foreign companions with the chance to discover new and fascinating frontiers of plasma technology whereas bringing the promise of fusion strength toward fact. The ITER undertaking has garnered the dedication and may draw at the medical strength of 7 foreign companions, China, the eu Union, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia, and the USA, international locations that symbolize greater than half the world's inhabitants. The good fortune of ITER depends on every one partner's skill to totally have interaction itself within the medical and technological demanding situations posed through advancing our knowing of fusion. during this ebook, the nationwide study Council assesses the present U.S. division of strength (DOE) plan for U.S. fusion group participation in ITER, evaluates the plan's parts, and recommends acceptable targets, tactics, and metrics for attention sooner or later improvement of the plan.

However, program managers should not rely on bibliographical figures alone, but should run complementary analyses using the metrics outlined in this section and the next. It is understood that data on publications are influenced by a variety of factors and can vary from project to project, and so having a suite of assessment tools is critical.
