The first part of the report sets the background to the project. This is followed by a description of the main features of the JET apparatus, its experimental programme and the position of the project in the overall Euratom programme. In addition, it relates JET to other large fusion devices throughout the world. The next section reports on the technical status of the machine. This is followed by the results of JET operations in 1989 under various operating conditions including ohmic heating, radio-frequency heating, neutral beam heating and various combined scenarios in different magnetic field configurations; the overall global and local behaviour observed; also 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. The first part of this report concludes with a description of the proposed future programme of JET until its planned conclusion. 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 1989, and details of the staff complement.
