It is of the utmost importance to keep Europe in the forefront of high‐energy physics, and the 300‐GeV project remains its primary objective, says CERN's European Committee for Future Accelerators. Reviewing the 1963 Amaldi report, the committee still agreed with proposals for a 300‐GeV machine and intersecting storage rings, national or regional projects for meson factories, and a high‐energy electron machine. But to proceed with its program, Europe needs the support of powerful schools of high‐energy physics spread over CERN's 13 member states, working in contact with universities and having adequate research tools “as is the case in the United States.” To this end, says the committee, countries should spend as much money internally on high‐energy physics as they contribute annually to CERN. Otherwise European physicists will not be able to “avail themselves efficiently of opportunities offered by CERN and other large laboratories.”
