Updated: New Review Slams Fusion Project's Management
28 February 2014 3:00 pm
ITER, the international fusion reactor project in France, is reeling from an assessment that found serious problems with the project's leadership, management, and governance. The report is so damning, Science has learned, that after a 13 February special session that reviewed and accepted the report's conclusions and recommendations, the ITER Council—the project's governing body—restricted its readership to a small number of senior managers and council members. ITER leaders fear that the damning assessment, combined with expected delays, could cause backers to pull their funding.
*Update, 28 February, 3 p.m.: The executive summary of the report on management of the international ITER fusion reactor project was published today by The New Yorker.
