In IFMIF/EVEDA, tasks for lithium target system consist of 5 validation tasks (LF1-5) and a design task (LF6), and are shared by Japan and Europe. Japan is covering LF1, LF2, LF4, LF5 and LF6, and JAEA as an Implementing Agency is organizing these tasks. Japanese universities contribute these tasks. The purpose of LF1 task is to construct and operate EVEDA Li test loop (ELTL) with diagnostics and purification systems for the validation of Li target facility. ELTL will be constructed at the end of February in 2011 and the operation will be started at the summer in 2011. LF2 and LF4 are basic research for the diagnostics and purification system, respectively. And LF2 and LF4 have also contributed the construction of the ELTL (LF1). LF5 is focusing on the remote handling for the replacement of the target assembly. Major deliverable of LF6 is finally engineering design report, which is assembled with all validation tasks, and this activity will be gradually enhanced to the end of IFMIF/EVEDA.
