ITER

ITERIS – Design and Implementation of an Integrated Modelling Infrastructure

Coordinating university:

Chalmers University of Technology,

Project description

ITER is the next generation of fusion experiments and is aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of fusion energy as a viable energy source for the future. It is currently under construction with a first plasma expected 2025. The ITERIS consortium was set up to bring the long-term European activity on simulation and modeling as a basis for the future ITER analysis environment. The project defines the data model for ITER, the related access tools and implements a workflow orchestration tool for developing simulations on the modelling platform.
The prototype installation has now been adopted by the ITER organization and is promoting this for developments and use of the global fusion community with the continued support from the consortium.
