Report of the US ITER Research Program Research Needs Workshop

The US ITER Research Program Research Needs Workshop is complete, having produced a report describing the research scope, organization, and activities of a proposed US ITER Research Program. This represents the work of over 400 participants from across the US fusion community. In this talk, we will describe a community view that points the way forward to the US being an effective partner in making ITER a success as well as returning critical knowledge and experience leading toward realization of fusion energy as a clean, reliable energy source.
