France is participating as one of the European voluntary contributors to the joint Europe-Japan so-called Broader Approach (BA) activities in support of ITER and DEMO activities, consisting of three projects: the engineering design and validation of a 14-MeV-neutron irradiation facility (IFMIF-EVEDA), the building of the International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC), and the ITER Satellite Tokamak Programme (STP-JT-60SA). This paper gives an overview of the French contributions to the BA projects and reports on the present status of these projects since 2007.
