The European negative ion based neutral beam programme consists of experimenting on high energy electrostatic accelerators and high current D(-) sources, and neutral beam physics and system design studies. Recent experimental results obtained at CEA-Cadarache and at Dublin City University are discussed along with neutral beam heating studies (NBH) conducted at JET. Neutral beam heating studies based on the RLW model indicate that ignition on ITER-EDA should be reached with about 40 MW of 0.4-1 MeV D(0) beams. The outlines of an NBH system for ITER-EDA, based on SINGAP, have been studied.
