This paper summarises the latest engineering work of the JET team. It describes the design, construction and commissioning of the new JET. The essential objective of JET is to obtain and study a plasma in conditions and dimensions approaching those needed in a thermonuclear reactor. The realisation of this objective involves four main areas of work: scaling of plasma behaviour as parameters approach the reactor range, plasma-wall interaction in these conditions, study of plasma heating, and study of alpha particle production, confinement and consequent plasma heating.
