    The Joint European Torus (JET) fusion machine is the only device capable of operation with tritium and Be, which makes it best suited to study ITER relevant issues. A large variety of activities are performed within the JET fusion technology task force. In this paper, some topics, such as erosion/deposition and material transport, flakes characterization and detritiation techniques, are highlighted. Recent results obtained using a pumping cryopanel and on plasma facing component (PFC) characterization, are given. Finally, issues that will be addressed in the forthcoming JET work-programme are presented, such as a beryllium main wall for JET and in situ laser detritiation.
