Michel Claessens

ITER Policy Officer at European Commission

Currently working for ITER, the international fusion reactor under construction in France, where he was director of communication from 2011 to 2015. His most indulgent colleagues qualify his career as « diversified ». Having a PhD in physics-chemistry, his passions drive him towards both science and literature, and have allowed him to hold responsibility positions in the European Commission for over twenty years.   Professor at the University of Brussels, he is also an author and international speaker. He is currently finishing a book on the history of the ITER project.
