Location of Cadarache, France

Cadarache in Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur, France is a research center for nuclear energy created in 1959 by the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique. The center is on the commune of Saint-Paul-lès-Durance.

Located about 60 km north-east inland from Marseille, it has been a nuclear research centre since president Charles de Gaulle launched France's atomic energy program in 1959.

It is the designated site of the future international tokamak fusion power reactor ITER. This was decided in a final meeting in Moscow on June 28, 2005.
