The first part of the report deals with the scientific and technical aspects of the project. It sets the project in context, within Euratom and in relation to other large fusion devices and gives the background. The main features of the JET apparatus and the experimental programme are outlined. The next section reports on the technical status of the machine including technical changes and achievements during 1988, details of the operational organisation of experiments and pulse statistics and progress on enhancements in machine systems for future operation. This is followed by the results of JET operations in 1988 under various operating conditions including ohmic heating, radio-frequency (RF) heating, neutral beam (NB) heating and various combined scenarios in different magnetic field configurations; the overall global and local behaviour observations; and the progress towards reactor conditions. In particular, the comparative performance between JET and other tokamaks, in terms of fusion product obtained, shows the substantial achievements made by JET since the start of operations in 1983. This section concludes with a discussion of future scientific prospects and the proposed future programme. The second part of the report explains the organisation and management of the project and describes the administration of JET. In particular, this part sets out the budget situation, contractual arrangements during 1988 and details of the staff complement.
